In-Memoriam: Judith E. Adams, MBBS

Recommended Posts

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of ASBMR member Professor Judith Adams. Professor Adams had a long prolific academic and clinical career. Professor Adams most recently served as a Consultant Radiologist at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and has been Clinical Director of the Radiology Department at Manchester Royal Infirmary and Chair of the regional committee for Clinical Excellence awards. She had a particular interest in osteoporosis, fracture recognition and the measurement of bone mineral density and her research has resulted in over 200 peer-reviewed publications, 24 invited reviews and 34 book chapters to date. She will be remembered as a great teacher and an exemplary colleague. She was dedicated and worked with passion to raise the radiologists' awareness and improve the healthcare of patients with osteoporosis. Professor Adams was so gracious and energetic that was only natural to have a positive impact to those that knew her. Join us in recognizing Professor Adams’ contribution to our field by leaving a note below, sharing a memory, or contributing a donation in her honor.

Judith Adams, in memoriam

 

I recall the days when Judy Lockyer was a registrar on the "firm" (British for team) of Theo Chalmers, an internist with specialization in calcium endocrinology at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge. This was back in the early '70s. On this same firm was Peter Adams, a senior registrar who was a calcium expert in his own right. Judy always had an easy smile and was a regular at the Little Rose, the pub adjacent to Addenbrooke's at the time, to which registrar, houseman, and medical student on call would all sign out to the operator. Peter, who was always quite serious, Judy and their colleague Steve Moss all received offers from the University of Manchester. Judy and Peter married and that is where I left things. Fast forward 30 years. I was back at Cambridge for a meeting of the Bone and Tooth Society (now the Bone Research Society) and all of a sudden I saw Judy. We were both surprised to reconnect after all that time. I was delighted to learn of her accomplishments and surprised that she had chosen to pursue radiology given her original interest in calcium endocrinology. Since then we made it a point to touch base at every meeting we both attended, especially at ASBMR annually. I will miss you, Judy.

Rest in Peace Judy and Peter who sadly passed away two days after her death. There will be a joint funeral on 19th October, details;

Thursday 19th October 2017 at 11.30 am, St Peters Church, 233 Ashley Rd, Hale, Altrincham WA15 9SS.

The family have advised that they would prefer no black mourning clothes. Family flowers only and any donations to the National Osteoporosis Society.

Judy was such a wonderful advocate for osteoporosis in the UK and internationally, and part of her legacy will be the countless people whose lives she improved through her direct actions. Particularly she led by example, educating everyone she could on how to identify and report vertebral fractures. She was kind, brilliant and caring.

Judy was a delightful friend and colleague. her support for the conferences we held in bath and accross the UK was always certain. When we started the NOS national training scheme Judy could always be included in the faculty. She is missed, as I am sure is Peter who sometimes came to conferences with her. We all remember her friendly and cheerful manner, always a pleasure to meet with.
