It is with heavy hearts we recognize the sudden and untimely death of our wonderful medical director, Dr. Melanie Madill. Dr. Madill was instrumental in the development of our model of integrated medical, and mental health care. Her dedication, sharp mind, and deep care for youth have been an inspiration to the work for the past 9 years. We will profoundly miss her presence. But we hope to carry on the vision she shared with us. She would expect nothing less.
