”Dr. Blaisdell inspired every generation of physicians trained at the medical school with his tireless devotion to producing highly-qualified, culturally sensitive doctors for Hawaiʻi,” said JABSOM Dean Jerris R. Hedges, MD. “Our alumni, faculty and staff overwhelmingly want to bring Dr. Blaisdell’s remains home to JABSOM one last time, to give him our aloha.”
