One of the nicest things about my job is celebrating the success of the terrific people who work at this organization. I just returned from a luncheon honouring not one - but two - UHN docs for their achievements at an impossibly early stage of their careers. Listening to the track record of the 40 Canadians from coast to coast who were recognized as winners of the "Top 40 Under 40" awards, it was easy to feel somewhat inadequate. However the sense of UHN pride experienced when Drs. Aaron Schimmer and Viv Rao were introduced was really quite special. Aaron and Viv are wonderful researchers and great doctors. It would be spectacular for us to have two of our staff recognized in any one year - but then remember that Shaf Keshavjee, David Jaffray and Matt Anderson have also received this award in the very recent past. As Viv said on the front of the Globe and Mail section this morning: "No amount of praise or money or obligation will get you out of bed in the morning. You've got to love what you do. " We are very lucky that UHN has so many stars who inspire us to love to do what we do.
I also had the opportunity yesterday to join Tennys Hanson from the TGH/TWH Foundation and Dr. Mary Ferguson-Pare in celebrating achievements in nursing with a variety of different awards. So many people at this organization are excelling in bringing better care to our patients and it is simply a pleasure to recognize the creativity and excellence of the people who work here.
