You are my role model for how to be a psychiatrist, a colleague, a mother, a wife, and a 'girl boss'. Your contributions in all of these domains have been enormous and will not be forgotten. Thank you for being a shining example for so many of us.

You showed me compassion and kindness at a difficult time in my life, and I will never forget that. I would strive to embody many of the qualities that you had as a physician and someone I looked up to during my training. Thank you.

In Celebration of Megan Lees Roberts

It’s Megan here, your friend, family member, colleague.

Yes, writing her own commemorative page.

…As a way to recognize and thank those of you at the Royal Columbian Hospital who have made my work as a psychiatrist consulting to medicine and surgery, the most rewarding career I could have imagined.

It has been a privilege to study medicine and to practice psychiatry.  It has been a privilege to work with you.   I remember my last day at RCH clearly. After a day on the wards in July 2020, I finished clearing out my office as we prepared to move into the new Mental Health and Substance Use Wellness Centre.  As I left, I paused and looked over my shoulder to reflect on the place where I had started my career in 2007.  The next morning, I was unexpectedly diagnosed with metastatic cancer and did not return to work.  Though I have spent the past months focusing on family and friends, I have thought of you, my colleagues, every day since.

Thank you to Hema Joshi for being my career mentor and friend, and for putting together a tribute for me.  Thank you to all of you who have recognized my contribution and sent your love and well wishes, from the trauma team, ICU, internal medicine, neurology, social work, nursing, addiction medicine, emergency medicine, cardiology, the hospitalist group, and psychiatry.  Your words have been the best medicine.

The RCH Foundation is a worthy and fitting cause for anyone who wishes to make a donation in my memory.   Contributions will go to support an honorary scholarship fund that has been established by my colleagues to keep alive my passion for education and for consultation liaison psychiatry.  You will be supporting a place that provides outstanding care by people worth investing in.

RCH family, may you keep up the good work, and may you work to live.

 

 

“What we don’t learn in medical school or nursing school is that we have the power to heal even when we can’t cure.”  – Dr. Lauren Daley (@talkdyingtome)
