The first article features Drs. Sarah Levitt and Daniel Rosenbaum, staff psychiatrists at UHN's Centre for Mental Health leading calls to integrate environmental determinants of health into mental health care practice. Recognizing the climate crisis as the "largest existential threat of our time," Dr. Levitt told UHN News it will “have a big effect on mental health at a population level and we need to be prepared for that." Read UHN News to learn more about the pair's efforts to educate and advocate on this issue.
The second shone a light on UHN's Dental Oncology team and how Princess Margaret Cancer Centre provides dental care to patients as part of their cancer therapy. As Dr. Michael Glogauer, Chief of Dentistry at UHN, told UHN News, “dentistry often gets overlooked in a patient's medical journey." The dental team takes proactive steps to minimize risks for head and neck cancer patients who receive radiation, which can affect saliva production and spur tooth decay. Drs. Glogauer and Erin Watson, Deputy Chief of Dentistry at UHN, are leading Canada's sole dental oncology fellowship at the University of Toronto, and a cancer and transplant-specific dental management night clinic for dentistry students.

Registration is open for UHN Foundation's Rally for Rehab! As we know, patients at Toronto Rehab undergo rehabilitation to overcome the challenges of debilitating health conditions. As a continuation of their care journey after receiving treatment at UHN or elsewhere, patients come to Toronto Rehab to regain their strength, relearn vital life skills and discover new ways to approach daily tasks so they can return to their lives. TeamUHN works every day to help them thrive and reach their full potential. On Sunday,
September 10 , join the annual Rally for Rehab, presented by BMO, for a day of family-friendly activities and an accessible walk. I encourage TeamUHN to participate in this event and rally for those who have benefitted from rehabilitation at some point in their lives, by supporting research, education, and enhanced patient care at Toronto Rehab. Join as an individual or round up your co-workers, family, and friends to Rally for Rehab. Register now!

Don't miss this UHN News story on a cancer survivor who won The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation's Early Bird cottage prize in 2021, valued at $1.7 million. Eric Nguyen said his treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma in 2009 left him with a resolve to contribute to cancer research and efforts to find a cure. "I received first-class health care treatment from the Canadian health care system," he said. "I want everyone to have the same experience I had." Now cancer-free, Eric, his wife, and their two children spend more weekends at their cottage on Buckhorn Lake. The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation runs three lotteries annually to give away amazing properties and homes worth millions.
