In memoriam: Katherine Lippel

We have lost a wonderful person and great mind in the Work Disability Prevention field. I was fortunate to meet and know Katherine through the WDP CIHR Strategic Training Program held at the Universite de Sherbrooke from 2007-2010. Her mind and speech always captivated me. Her knowledge of law and workers' compensation systems around the world was truly impressive. My last face-to-face interaction with Katherine was at the 2018 CARWH Conference in Vancouver. She was so proud and impressed with all the contributions of the WDP graduates. Katherine was a great mentor and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to know and learn from her.

She will be missed.
