It is with great sadness that I can let all Transplant Australia members know that esteemed and much loved Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Transplant Physician, Josette Eris, has passed away.
TSANZ President Steve Chadban informed the transplant community today (May 4) that Josette passed away peacefully surrounded by her family after a short and sudden illness. Josette was a wonderful contributor to improvements in transplantation locally, nationally and internationally. In particular she was seen as a pioneer for women in transplantation. She will be very much missed by her patients, colleagues and physician trainees to whom she was like a ‘mother hen’. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
