Dear Society Members,
I am saddened to report that Teratology Society founding member Dr. F. Clarke Fraser has died at the age of 94. Dr. Fraser was a true pioneer in the field of medical genetics and his achievements are celebrated far and wide. He was a wonderful teacher and mentor to many Society members and he will be greatly missed by us all. In 2012 Dr. Fraser was inducted into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame. I would like to share with you the professional biography and touching video tribute that was produced as part of this recognition. We will keep you informed of how the Teratology Society will honor Dr. Fraser’s memory.
Please join me in extending our condolences to his family and friends and in remembering the positive impacts Dr. Fraser had on us personally and professionally by using the Comment function at the bottom of this message. Please log into BDR Connection in order to post a Comment. We will compile these messages to send to his family.
