BOSTON, Mass. - Susan Hadley, MD, 65, passed peacefully at home in Boston following a long illness.
She was Professor of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine. From 2008 to 2010, she was Attending Physician, Department of Medicine, Infectious Disease Division, Bassett Healthcare.
She was a physician of exceptional skill, heart and commitment, devoted to patients and their families and to training young physicians in both the science and the deeper, sacred obligations of medicine. She began her career during the early days of the AIDS crisis and ended it inspiring young physicians to work in global health.
She maintained a home in Cooperstown and returned as often as possible to this sanctuary for the serenity and deep friendships that it provided.
Her vitality, welcoming smile and empathetic soul were cherished by all who were fortunate to know and love this amazing woman.
She is survived by her husband, Dr. Martin Obin of Boston; brothers, Dr. James Hadley of Bonita Springs, Florida and Rick Hadley of Park City Utah; their children's families; and beloved lab, Sammi.
