Welcome to the new British Columbia Chapter Board President Dr. Charles Scudamore
We are pleased to announce Dr. Charles Scudamore as the Canadian Liver Foundation’s new British Columbia Chapter Board President, filling the role formerly held by the late Dr. Francis Ho.
Dr. Charles Scudamore is one of Canada’s most well-known hepatobiliary, liver transplant surgeons and is British Columbia’s foremost physicians, working to extend the lives of those diagnosed with serious cancers.
“Dr. Francis Ho did such a magnificent job in this role. It will be impossible to replace him, but I hope to continue his legacy,” said Dr. Scudamore.
Dr. Scudamore co-founded the liver transplant program in 1989 and has been a leading surgical expert in liver transplantation, hepatobiliary oncology and trauma at the Vancouver General Hospital and British Columbia Children’s Hospital. He also developed Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery at the University of British Columbia and is the former president of the North Pacific Surgical Association and British Columbia Surgical Society.
An expert on the early recognition of pancreatic cancer as well as advanced colorectal metastases to the liver, Dr. Scudamore has led efforts to increase the number of liver transplants performed in British Columbia.
In recognition of research and other efforts to improve outcomes for patients with pancreatic cancer, Dr. Scudamore received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 and was a recipient of the Order of British Columbia, the highest honour a resident of British Columbia can obtain. He was honoured by the Vancouver General Hospital and is a past Medical Honouree of the Canadian Liver Foundation, BC/Yukon Region’s LIVERight Gala and has received the Gift of Life Award from the Happy Liver Society.
Dr. Scudamore served as the honorary Chair of the Canadian Liver Foundation, BC/Yukon Region’s LIVERight Gala and has volunteered his time as a lecturer at the annual LIVERight Health Forum.
“Research for liver diseases is a national endeavor – the CLF sponsors and funds research and social institutions across the country,” said Dr. Scudamore. “Raising regional funding for research is important, because when it all comes together, it helps every canadian.”
We are extremely honoured to have him join our board and are grateful for what his expertise, focus and dedication to his medical research and practice will bring to the foundation.
