Douglas Green, M.D.Associate Professor
Our beloved colleague Doug Green was killed in an avalanche on January 21, 2015. It is an enormous loss.
All of us who knew Doug are aware that there was not a more caring person in the world. His genuineness, selflessness, and unmatched devotion to teaching and patients serves as an inspiration to all. Doug is a role model for how we should treat others.
The pain from the loss of Doug is immeasurable. In meeting with and hearing from individuals in Seattle and across the country, the depth of sadness being expressed could not be greater.
Equally resonant are the statements celebrating our remarkable friend. Doug leaves memories that will live on forever. The department, the field of radiology, and so many of us are better for the interactions we had.
