Eda Quadros - in memoriam


It is with great sadness that the ISRM informs the friends and colleagues of Eda Freitas de Quadros e Barton that she passed away after a long fight with her illness. The funeral services take place today in São Paulo, Brazil.

The ISRM owes Eda a lot from her enormous and constant dedication to the Society during many years, as an active member of Commissions, Vice President for Latin America and President.

Our thoughts are with Eda's husband Nick Barton and her close family and friends, to whom we present our deepest condolences.

May Eda rest in peace.

Luís Lamas
Secretary General, ISRM
