I had the privilege to interact with Dr. Proud when I was employed by the Virginia Department of Health/Newborn Screening Program. Dr. Proud was the genetic consultant for the Hampton Roads, Virginia area. She =was instrumental in identifying and treating many children who were diagnosed with genetic disorders. She left a medical legacy and I am sure that she is instrumental in preparing someone to carry on her beloved work. God bless the family of Dr. Proud and know that your beloved has touched many lives.
