The LIME network acknowledges the passing, and pays our deepest respect to Professor Dennis McDermott, and we recognise what will be his lasting legacy on our shared work.
Dennis has been central to the LIME network for nearly two decades. Dennis exemplified Leadership in Indigenous Medical Education.
His keynote presentation at LIME V in Darwin in 2013 with the late Prof. LC Chan on Medical Humanities challenged us to think about the world outside of ‘hard science’, and how that often fell short of the humanity which exemplified Dennis’ approach to life, his work, and his relationships with us.
We will miss Dennis’ characteristic ‘radio voice’. His advocacy, and his own cultural humility. Our thoughts and prayers are with his immediate family, and with the many communities who recognised Dennis as one of their own.
