Tribute to Dr Klugman
Dr Susan Klugman retired from the Johannesburg CF Paediatric Clinic (CMJAH) at the end of November 2020.
Her retirement came after 32 years of commitment and dedication to the treatment of children with cystic fibrosis, as well as other chronic respiratory disorders. During most of her time at the clinic Dr Klugman headed up the unit and was also an active member of the Medical & Scientific Advisory Committee for CF (MSAC).
I asked Dr Klugman to send me some facts about her time at the Clinic, and she kindly offered to write a full story of her experiences over those 32 years.
Dr Klugman was always kind and understanding, and was loved by children and parents alike. Her departure leaves a big gap, but she leaves behind a good infrastructure and staff backup, so I am confident that the clinic will continue to prosper.
We wish you everything of the best on your new journey into retirement and we will be sure to stay in touch!
Alan Dunn and everyone at SACFA
