UBC School of Nursing Honorary Professor Dr. Beverly Witter DuGas passed away November 22, 2012, surrounded by her family. She was in her 89th year of a remarkable life.

The School of Nursing community is saddened by the loss of a dedicated champion, who was a faithful attendee at many School events in recent years, and was always willing to engage in lively dialogue and debate about nursing education.
