The family medicine community has lost an extraordinary leader,
educator, and mentor. Dr. David Gass touched many lives throughout
his career, gifting the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the
family medicine community as a whole with his wise counsel and
leadership. His dedication to supporting patients, colleagues, and
students reached far beyond the community where he practised to
individuals and institutions across the country.
Dr. Gass’s role as a mentor has emerged from many of the stories and
memories that friends and colleagues have shared. In this role he
inspired countless young family doctors to be their best selves. His
legacy lives on through the work and lives of those who knew him. The
Dr. David Gass Memorial Fund celebrates the lasting mark he left on
family medicine and on so many of us.
Your donation to the Dr. David Gass Memorial Fund will support a FAFM
initiative that will be selected in consultation with Dr. Gass’s family.
