CAANCB member & anatomist, Dr. John Basmajian

Prominent Canadian scientist, physician, anatomist, and leader in rehabilitative medicine, Dr. John Basmajian, has recently died, according to the Globe and Mail. He died in Burlington Ontario March 18, 2008, at the age of 86. A long obituary appeared in the Globe and Mail on April 21, 2008.

As an anatomist Dr. Basmajian would have been best known to members of the CAANCB. He was an author of many useful texts and articles and a few years ago, he arranged for reprints of one of his many books (his surface anatomy pocket book) to be made available to medical students. He also established a very prestigious award for the American Association of Anatomists.
