Professor of Mechanical Engineering Lucjan Kops died peacefully at his home on Tuesday, May 19, approximately one year after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His friend and colleague Dr Helmi Attia was with Prof Kops at the time of his death. “He was in comfort and in the care of a doctor and nurse who were taking very good care of him,” Dr Attia said.
The annual Neuroscience Nursing Awards of Excellence Ceremony took place May 12 as part of National Nursing Week. The event was a wonderful showcase of dedication, spirit, determination, strength, compassion and innovation. It was an opportunity to pause and celebrate nurses and others who have gone above and beyond this last year making the Transition Plan a reality. We would like to recognize this year’s awardees and again thank all the staff for their hard work and dedication to patient care.
