Professor Emeritus Henry Fraser who has dedicated 33 years of his life to the teaching of medicine to others in Barbados and the region was recognised by his peers when the Faculty of Medical Sciences Auditorium was renamed in his honour tonight in the same auditorium which was opened in 2009 and which will bear his name.
In a ceremony which was attended by Pro Vice Chancellor and Principal, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, Vice Chancellor, Professor E. Nigel Harris, Vice Principal, Professor Eudine Barriteau, his wife Dr. Maureen Skeete-Fraser, the brightest and best of Cave Hill’s teaching staff were present for the grand moment for a grand teacher.  The leader of the senate Sir Branford Taitt and Lady Taitt also attended the occasion.
Described as a giant of the Cave Hill Campus and a gentle man, Professor Fraser appeared humbled by the occasion.
Professor Fraser had headed the Chronic Disease Research Centre and was Dean of the Faculty of Medical Science at Cave Hill until September 2010.  Professor Fraser had started his medical career at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in the 60s and he started teaching at the then School of Clinical Medicine and Research in 1977.
