Jacksons double up

11 December 2006

Siblings unrivalled: Dr Shaun Jackson and sister Catherine will be capped by dad, Prof Graham Jackson, this week.

The family of Prof Graham Jackson of the Department of Chemistry will continue their growing association with UCT this week. At the graduation ceremony of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Jackson will cap two of his offspring - Shaun and Catherine. Big brother Shaun will graduate with a Doctor of Medicine degree (MD) in medicine, for work done over two-and-a-half years at Harvard's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre in Boston in the US. At the moment, he is a paediatrics resident at the Boston Children's Hospital. Youngest daughter Catherine will graduate with an MBChB, and will start a two-year internship at McCord Hospital in Durban in 2007. Middle sibling Tracy, a 2003 MBChB graduate, works as a registrar in Ireland, but will return home to take up an anaesthetics post in Pietermaritzburg. And, lest we forget, mom Marilyn graduated with a social science degree from UCT in 1972, as well as a diploma in employment equity law in 2002.
