Flags lowered for Ronald Seegobin

Flags on campus currently lowered for student Madison Crich, Professor Emeritus Howard A. Smith and Professor Emeritus Robert Gilbert will remain lowered in honour of Dr. Ronald Seegobin. 
 
Dr. Seegobin began his career with Queen’s University in 1989 in the School of Medicine’s Department of Anesthesiology, where he inspired students and residents for the next 26 years. 

Dr. Seegobin’s clinical and academic interests included cardiac anesthesia, 3D computer models of myocardial ischemia from precordial mapping, ECG analysis in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease, and the use of extradural opiates for pain relief. He received a number of grants from the British Heart Foundation, IBM, various pharmaceutical companies, and the Clinical Teachers’ Association of Queen’s University to pursue his research.

Dr. Seegobin passed away peacefully in his sleep. Visitation will be held at James Reid Funeral Home on May 1 from 6 pm-8 pm. Funeral service will be held in the chapel on May 2 at 11. As expressions of sympathy, memorial contributions may be made to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation.
