It is with immense sorrow that we must report the loss of an AMS family member. Our dear friend and colleague Joann Trypuc died suddenly last week . Joann has played an enormous role in the work of AMS since her initial involvement in the creation of the Phoenix Project in 2011. Her immense talents helped establish our compassionate care work and continued to impact its recent transition to “Compassionate Care in A Technological World”. You can find her most recent work, Transformational Trends in Healthcare on our site.
Her incredible intelligence, amazing insight and sparkling personality enhanced many an AMS Board meeting, brainstorming session, corporate event and conference, and the organization will be the poorer for her absence. There is some comfort in knowing that her immeasurable contributions will continue to influence the healthcare of Canadians for years to come. She will be very sadly missed. A lesson to live each day to the fullest, as Joann did. Her obituary is available here.
