General Public News 

Chers collègues,

Dear colleagues,

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of our colleague Robert Dufour on November 7th.

Dr. Robert Dufour completed a bachelor’s degree in physiology-biochemistry at the Université de Sherbrooke, a master’s degree in nutrition at Laval University and medical studies at the Université de Montréal. He completed his postdoctoral training in lipidology at the IRCM. A specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of dyslipidemias, since 2001 he has been Associate Director of the Cardiovascular Prevention Clinic at the IRCM and, until recently, Director of the Nutrition, Metabolism and Atherosclerosis Clinic. He was also an associate member of the CHUM Department of General Medicine. A very active member of SQLNM and CMDO, he was the recipient of the Paul Lupien and Jean-Davignon Founders’ Award just a few months ago, in February 2018.

We invite you to consult below the obituary and funeral information : (http://www.salonfunerairerajotte.com/avis_de_deces_id_1611).

His great expertise, generosity, dynamism, camaraderie and immense humanism will be sorely missed. On behalf of all CMDO and SQLNM Board members, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to all members of his family and family and friends.

Pierre Julien, president of the SQLNM
André Carpentier, director of the CMDO
