In 1977, May and and her husband Gerry were both appointed to the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton.

When Dr. Steven Goldhar passed away suddenly in April 2017, his widow and fellow UofTMed alumna Barbara Huisman set up a memorial fund in his honour. She spoke with MedAlumni’s Julie Lafford about her late husband and their dedication to the Faculty of Medicine.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Tell me about your husband.

From performing heart transplants and repairing damaged mitral valves, to developing new technologies that will improve donor heart viability — Dr. Mitesh Badiwala is helping give patients a new lease on life. The U of T alumnus spoke with MedAlumni’s Julie Lafford about his work as a clinician scientist and cardiac surgeon, and the mentors who supported his career.

Dr. Paul Caulford didn’t set out to be an activist. But when the UofTMed alumnus and family physician heard about patients without health care insurance being denied care or faced with huge health bills, he helped launch a clinic for uninsured patients in Scarborough — now called the Canadian Centre for Refugee and Immigrant HealthCare.
