Celebrating Dr. Vasavan Nair and a lifetime of commitment to improving care in mental health

On November 4, 2022, researchers, clinicians, and managers of the Douglas Institute got together to celebrate Dr. Vasavan Nair and his lifetime of contributions to psychiatry at the Douglas. Dr. Nair is one of the founders of the Douglas Research Centre and was the driving force behind the successful application to FRQS for recognition as a FRQS-supported research centre.

His career has spanned an incredible 7 decades, 5 of which were spent here at the Douglas, and his contributions to clinical care, education, and in fostering research in this community are innumerable.
