Colleague Remembered

Dr. Cheemun Lum


Our close friend, Dr. Cheemun Lum, had a profound effect on the Ottawa Stroke Program. His leadership in interventional neuroradiology was a formative influence, and his research collaboration was instrumental to our academic mission. Cheemun’s time was too short, and we miss him dearly.
