This week, we celebrate National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week. There are more than 4,000 Canadians on the waiting list for a lifesaving organ transplant, but the fact is there aren't enough organs for everyone in need. Every year, more than 270 people on the waitlist die in Canada. Home to the
Ajmera Transplant Centre, UHN sees firsthand the impact that every organ donor has in saving a life. Follow ATC's social media channels to engage in important conversations about organ and tissue donation:

April 28th is the National Day of Mourning, a time to commemorate and remember all those who have suffered a workplace death, injury, or illness. Also known as Workers' Memorial Day, this occasion is marked in about 100 countries, according to WSIB Ontario, by wearing black and yellow ribbons and observing a moment of silence at 11 a.m. for those lost due to workplace tragedies. TeamUHN members, such as those in our emergency and rehabilitation departments, often care for people left severely injured or fighting for their lives after a workplace incident. I encourage you all to spare a thought today for those workers who left their houses one morning and who either never returned or came back forever changed because of a workplace accident. For more,
