I am writing to let you know that Dr. Don Low died last night and that we have all lost a friend and colleague who contributed much to University Health Network, Mount Sinai Hospital, the health of all Ontarians – indeed, through his work, the health of people around the world.
I know that many of you will remember Don for the role he played in the SARS crisis as he advised the government on the provincial and federal response to a disease that arrived on our doorstep with little warning and with lethal consequences. He was always calm, measured and responsive to advice from many people. It was a difficult time and Don was one of the people whose leadership saw us through.
Don was always been an integral part of our Laboratory Medicine Program, serving as Chief of Microbiology for many years in a joint service with Mount Sinai and teaching generations of students. He will be missed by his friends and family most of all and my thoughts are with them.
