History: Julia Foster, M.D. was deeply respected by her peers in the medical profession, by all those whom she cared for and treated, and most deeply by her loving husband, son and a host of admiring family and friends. Julia’s informed and always other-directed compassion provided and will continue to provide a model of heartfelt caring and the best of the medical profession to all who knew of and benefitted from her unique spirit and humble, yet clearly superior skill. Julia’s uncompromising care for her family was an inspiration to her husband Jeff, to her child whom she loved so deeply and to all who were privileged to witness her life in the service of others.
