​​​It's hard to believe summer is already winding down—I hope you have been taking some time to relax and enjoy the rest of the season with family and friends. The bustle of the fall and a new school year is approaching, and we are preparing for an exciting next few months at UHN.

Temerty/Chang Telesimulation Centre moving to Michener's St. Patrick campus

The Michener Institute of Education at UHN will soon be welcoming an exciting addition to its campus: the Temerty/Chang Telesimulation Centre. In mid-August, the Centre will be moving from Toronto Western to Michener's St. Patrick campus, where staff and researchers will continue to develop world-class telesimulation training programs while providing students with a unique learning opportunity. Learn more about Temerty/Chang and the move.

Remembering Jack Rabinovitch

Many people will have read that Jack Rabinovitch died a week ago. He was a Canadian philanthropist best known for founding the Scotiabank Giller Prize, one of our country's most prestigious literary awards. What some may not know is how critical Jack was to the construction of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, which opened in the mid-nineties on University Avenue. At his funeral, Bob Rae paid tribute to Jack's volunteerism and his commitment to cancer treatment. Rae, who was Premier of Ontario and played his own role in approving the construction, said that Jack was enormously proud of chairing the building committee that brought the building in on time and under budget. We all owe Jack gratitude and admiration for the role he played in our success. He was part of the UHN family and will be missed by many people throughout UHN.
