The UH John A. Burns School of Medicine’s former dean, Dr. Cadman, passed away on September 24th, at the age of 70, surrounded by his family in Oregon. He arrived in Hawaii in 1999 and stepped down as dean in 2005 after learning that he suffered from Primary Progressive Aphasia, a rare degenerative condition that robs those it strikes of the ability to articulate thoughts in speech or writing. Dr. Cadman retired on October 31, 2009. JABSOM has been a KIA member because of his support and KIA extends their condolences.
