Dr. Claude Roy inducted into Canadian Medical Hall of Fame

Dr. Claude Roy, a pioneer of pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition, and a former member of AllerGen NCE’s Board of Directors, has been inducted into The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame. Known as an outstanding researcher, clinician, teacher and mentor, Dr. Roy is a Professor Emeritus at the Université de Montréal and a gastroenterologist at CHU Sainte-Justine, the largest mother and child centre in Canada. His visionary research on infant nutrition, chronic liver disease in children, and gastrointestinal and hepatobilliary manifestations of Cystic Fybrosis, has helped children overcome severe illnesses and advanced the study of pediatric gastroenterology to a vibrant and valued medical subspecialty. Established in 1994, The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame—the only one of its kind in the world—is dedicated to celebrating medical heroes. On May 2, 2013, Dr. Roy was one of six of Canada’s distinguished medical leaders inducted into the Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Halifax, N.S.
