Congratulations to Mary Lollar who recently marked her 730th consecutive day running, a truly remarkable feat
captured by CityNews. Mary, who works as an administrative assistant in the division of respirology at Toronto General, took up running at the beginning of the pandemic and told CityNews she kept going each day for those arriving at hospitals with COVID. "I think to myself, I can do this and there's millions that can't," she said. Mary is retiring on March 31. We thank her for her many years of service and for inspiring so many members of TeamUHN during such a difficult period.
Congratulations to Robert Brussolo on his retirement after 44 years at UHN! Robert first started working at UHN in 1978, as a part-time dietary porter for Versa Services at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Over the years Robert has been an important part of many changes that have occurred in the Nutrition Department including the introduction of cook/freeze food production, transition from hot tray assembly to cold plating, and the University Centre becoming the tray assembly hub for much of Toronto Rehab. Robert has been in his current role as a Store Person since 1997, where he maintains the flow of food and supplies in and out of the University Centre Kitchen. Robert is looking forward to spending more time with his wife, children and grandchild as well as getting a few rounds of golf in.
Congratulations to Susan Nash on her retirement after 40 years of service at UHN! Susan first started at Toronto General in 1981 on 14 Eaton (General Medicine) providing care to patients with Cardiac, Hematologic, and Gastrointestinal illnesses as well as Home TPN patients. Susan worked in the TGH relief pool when she went back to school to complete her BScN before transferring to the Vascular Surgery where she worked as a Research Coordinator for a drug trial for arterial leg ulcers. Upon completion of this trial, Susan provided time data collection for a Radiology Research Trial. After her work in research, Susan returned to the bedside in vascular surgery and urology before transferring to the MSICU where she has been an integral part of the team for well over 20 years. Susan holds a Canadian Nurses Association in Critical Care and is a vital member of the Critical Care Response Team. Over the years, Susan has dedicated her career to the provision of quality patient care.
You will soon notice a 40-foot flagpole outside of Toronto General, part of a new fundraising campaign from JDRF to fund research to cure type 1 diabetes (T1D). At this location and in four other spots across the country,
people impacted by T1D will live in a structure atop the pole for 100 hours – from April 4 to 8 – to raise $15 million towards JDRF's $100-million campaign.
Vanessa Oliver, diagnosed with T1D at six, will be atop the flagpole at Toronto General. More than 30 years ago, her father, Peter, spent a week atop a 40-foot pole in Toronto to raise money for diabetes research, saying that balancing up there was like the balancing act of life and death decisions faced each day by those with T1D. The event coincides with the 100th anniversary of the first clinical use of insulin, given at Toronto General on Jan. 23, 1922.
