Dear Colleagues,

Yesterday the Province announced a number of people who will be inducted in to the Order of Ontario with two of the 25 being Dr. Shaf Keshavjee and Dr. Gail Robinson.  I've included their citations below which briefly outline their accomplishments.  On behalf of everyone at UHN I congratulate Shaf and Gail and can only say that I appreciate their work and the work of all their colleagues in surgery, transplantation and psychiatry.

Dr. Shafique Keshavjee, a thoracic surgeon and world leader in lung transplantation. Based in Toronto, Dr. Keshavjee's advances in organ preservation and repair have significantly increased the number of donor lungs used to save lives with lung transplantation.

Dr. Gail Robinson of Toronto is internationally respected as a crusader in the fight against violence toward women. A psychiatrist, professor and advocate, she co-founded Canada's first rape crisis centre, and helped establish the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario's task force on physician-patient sexual abuse.
