I was delighted to read this story last week about TeamUHN member Chris Malcolm, the soulful singing security guard nominated for a Juno Award this year. Malcolm, who serves as a security guard at the Toronto General Hospital, and his bandmates in Kevin Adams & Voices of Praise, were nominated for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year. "I love what I do – I love singing and I love working at UHN," he told UHN News. I am always amazed at the unique talents and gifts that TeamUHN members possess and the wonderful personal stories in our community. Read more about Chris and his music at UHN News.
Researchers from Krembil Brain Institute (KBI), the University of Toronto, and the Hospital for Sick Children have developed an extensive list of 30 recommendations for concussion policies in school settings. This represents the first expert consensus for school-based concussion policies. Among the recommendations is a call for mandatory concussion education for teachers, school staff, students, parents and guardians, coaches, referees, and trainers. As Dr. Charles Tator, an Emeritus Scientist at KBI and the Director of the Canadian Concussion Centre told UHN News, streamlining policies can "reduce confusion and facilitate communication among various stakeholders, including educators, students, parents and guardians, and clinicians."

Have you had a chance yet to listen to Dr. Andrew Boozary, the executive director of UHN's Gattuso Centre for Social Medicine, discussing the Food Rx pilot project on the Toronto Star podcast "This Matters?" This unique and innovative partnership with FoodShare is making healthy food more accessible for those most in need by providing a "prescription" for home delivery of fresh vegetables and fruit. Dr. Boozary spoke about how food insecurity has a significant effect on people's health, particularly children, and how a broader policy response is needed to address poverty. Listen to the full podcast on the Toronto Star's website.
