Susan Hadley, M.D.
A Memorial Note

We at Clinical Therapeutics are sad to report that Susan Hadley, MD passed away on March 30, 2016. Susan was our first Topic Editor for Infectious Diseases. She distinguished herself as a clinician, educator, and scientist. She was also known as a champion for the proper and judicious use of antimicrobial agents. Her special themed sections on Antibiotic Stewardship and Resistant Gram-Positive Infections were both widely read and appreciated. She was also devoted to improving health care in Nicaragua and annually took Tufts students there to learn and work with her.

Susan and her family have requested that those who wish to honor her memory should target their gifts to the Nicaragua Global Health Program at Tufts University School of Medicine. Gifts should be sent to Medical Development, TUSM, 136 Harrison Ave., Boston , Massachusetts 02111.
