Two giants of medicine to receive honorary degrees (Dr. James Hogg)

McGill will present honorary degrees to two giants of medicine next month at a scientific symposium being held jointly with the McGill University Health Centre in celebration of the opening of the Glen site.

Dr. Jonathan Meakins, one of the most distinguished surgical leaders in the history of McGill’s Faculty of Medicine, and Dr. James C. Hogg, widely recognized as the world’s leading authority on the pathology of chronic obstructive lung disease, will be honoured on Friday, March 27, at Centre Mont-Royal, 2200 Mansfield St., across from the downtown McGill Campus.

There will also be an MUHC-McGill “homecoming” event on Thursday, March 26, including a special dinner attended by Principal and Vice-Chancellor Suzanne Fortier, as well as special tours on Saturday of the new Glen site, which is nearing completion and is scheduled to begin receiving patients in April.
