In Memoriam

Dr. Janette Carter

Dr. Janette Carter and her husband, Steven Wilkes, died in an airplane crash shortly after takeoff during a sightseeing trip in Alaska on July 15. Carter received her M.D. from the UNM School of Medicine and was associated with the School of Medicine throughout most of her career.

Carter also practiced at the VAMC. She was known across campus and throughout the city as a social-activist, a successful researcher in the field of diabetes, a devoted wife and mother and good friend.

“Her death come as a tragic shock to colleagues and friends,” said Dr. Paul Roth, dean, SOM. “We greatly mourn the loss of such a highly respected and beloved member of the UNM family and share in the grief of those who survive her.”
