Prof. Walter K. Patrick

Dear Friends,

I am sure some of you knew Walter Patrick who had graduated from the Colombo Medical Faculty in August, 1962.
Prof. Walter K. Patrick passed away suddenly in Antonio, Texas on May 22nd.
Walter Patrick was undoubtedly a leader in Public Health/Community Medicine in Sri Lanka and elsewhere in the world. Before emigrating to the US, Walter was attached to the Health Education Bureau of the Ministry of Health where he rendered yeoman service from 1975 to 1983 as a Health Education Specialist. 
Our colleague and Walter's cousin Cyril Ernest had sent me the following links which will give an insight into Walter's achievements.
