Donate in Memory of Dr. Pamela Barton

 

 

In January, 2015, our dear friend and well-respected colleague, Dr. Pamela (Pam) Barton, passed away unexpectedly. Dr. Barton was a visionary in the field of Chronic Pain. In 1997, as co-founder of the nation's largest multi-disciplinary Chronic Pain Centre in Calgary, AB, she brought light to the sometimes bleak outlook on the management of pain.  She understood the value of collaboration between physicians of varying backgrounds and the entire interdisciplinary team in treating those suffering from chronic non-malignant pain. Being an expert in the management of complex musculoskeletal pain, Pam was devoted to educating herself, her colleagues and her patients about novel methods in treating and coping with pain.  The AHS Chronic Pain Centre is now her legacy.

Pam's expertise as a teacher and passionate clinician, along with her immense dedication to the Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, will be greatly missed. 

In recognition of her outstanding contributions to advancing patient care in chronic pain management and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, we are establishing the Dr. Pam Barton Memorial Fund within the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary, where she was a graduate of two degrees (Honours BSc’73 and MD’76) and an Associate Professor within the Department of Clinical Neurosciences.  Our goal is to raise $20,000 to create an endowment to support the Dr. Pam Barton Memorial Fund in perpetuity – ensuring Dr. Barton’s legacy will continue to inspire others for years to come.

All donations made will be issued a tax receipt. For any questions, please contact Andrea Ostergard with the Cumming School of Medicine at 403-220-2695 or andrea.ostergard@ucalgary.ca.
