TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2016 /CNW/ - Ontario's doctors are a close knit community, and we are all stunned by the tragic news of the untimely death of Dr. Elana Fric-Shamji. At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with her family, her friends, and her colleagues.
Elana was a talented family physician who was active in many efforts to improve the health-care system. I most recently spoke to her at our Fall Council, where she enthusiastically discussed her work to help advance the interests of physicians and their patients.
Efforts are underway within the Ontario Medical Association to properly memorialize Dr. Fric-Shamji, and to allow the community of her colleagues to assist in supporting her children. More details on this will be available shortly.
