Dr Peter

Dr Peter Jepson-Young, for whom the Dr Peter Centre in Vancouver is named, was a doctor who died of AIDS in 1992. His vision for compassionate care of people living with HIV/AIDS has made the centre a leader in caring for the most vulnerable HIV-positive people. In his AIDS Diaries for CBC, he said, "There is no substitute for the ongoing involvement and support of caring people."

One of the many interesting things about this article is that they talk to Dr Peter's mother about how her son's death changed her life. She talks about how volunteering at the centre helps her cope with her grief.
