Sunday, August 1 is Emancipation Day. Emancipation Day is formally recognized across Canada as the day enslavement of African peoples in all British colonies came to an end. It was through the tireless efforts of the enslaved and free status Africans, as well as Black and white abolitionists, that emancipation became a reality. Abolitionists and others who struggled against slavery, including those who arrived in Upper and Lower Canada by the Underground Railroad, have historically celebrated Emancipation Day. Please join the Ontario Black History Society, a UHN Partner, for their
free virtual event on Sunday , August 1 at 6:00 p.m., featuring music, historical facts and landmarks.
Register for the event here via Eventbrite. For more information, please contact

Wednesday, July 28 is World Hepatitis Day. A silent and dangerous disease, Hepatitis C is one of the deadliest strains of the virus, claiming lives of around 400,000 people per year, according to the World Health Organization – and this number is expected to climb after the pandemic. UHN's Viral Hepatitis Care Network (VIRCAN) has experienced a steep drop of over 50 per cent in people being screened for Hepatitis C, which has also been observed across Ontario. Screening is essential in order for people to access early treatment to a curable disease, and prevent severe complications like cirrhosis and liver cancer. Stay tuned for this week's UHN News story for World Hepatitis Day, and visit the
Toronto Centre for Liver Disease – Francis Family Liver Clinic and
VIRCAN websites for more information.
