Thalidomide Heroine Dead at Age of 101

Dr. Frances Oldham Kelsey, whose tireless efforts uncovered a link between the drug thalidomide and severe birth defects, has died at age 101.



Quote:
The Post, in a front-page article published in 1962 described Kelsey as a "heroine" whose "skepticism and stubbornness ... prevented what could have been an appalling American tragedy."
Just heard of this while listening to an unrelated NPR program.

I'm old enough to remember the Thalidomide tragedies. At the time she took a lot of heat for obstructing the release of a useful medication.

What was a nice gesture was this
Quote:
Kelsey received the Order of Canada from Elizabeth Dowdeswell, the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, at her London home a day before she died, her daughter, Christine Kelsey, said.
It was known she was on her death bed so they made special arrangements for her.
