In memory of Dr Josette Eris - TTS Councilor
We are very sorry to have to tell you that Josette Eris, a TTS Council Member from Australia, passed away today. Until a few months ago she was an active member of Council. She passed away peacefully at home in the company of her family after a brief illness. She was elected to Council in 2014, was Chair of the Women in Transplantation Committee, and was the first female President of TSANZ. She was one of the outstanding women in transplantation and was appointed Director of Nephrology at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital at a relatively young age. Under her leadership, the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital was one of the premier renal units in Australia; she demonstrated outstanding leadership and vision in support of renal transplantation in Australia. She will be remembered as someone who was energetic, forthright, fair, consultative and very supportive of trainees. Josette was survived by her husband and two sons. She will be remember fondly and missed by all of us at TTS.
