Obituary: Jan Albrecht
From Virginia O'Brien --
It is with deep sadness that the news came this week of Jan Albrecht’s passing on March 28, 2016. Jan passed away peacefully following a sudden brain bleed on March 22, 2016. As the family noted, “It was a long ‘Minnesota Goodbye.’”
Jan was an active member of the hand therapy community since her days of being an Associate member of ASHT in the 1980s. She was in the first group
to take -- and pass -- the CHT Exam in 1991, and was happy to be a CHT until 2011, when she retired from active hand therapy "duty." She has been my mentor and essential partner in spreading the word on the innovative dynamic stability of the painful thumb, traveling and speaking with me until 2013.
