September is Arthritis Awareness Month. More than six million Canadians live with arthritis, a chronic disease that can cause deterioration, inflammation, or swelling of bones, joints, and other connective tissues. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis. According to a recent study in the
Lancet Rheumatology, cases of Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, could grow to one billion worldwide by 2050. The Schroeder Arthritis Institute (SAI) at University Health Network is the largest multidisciplinary arthritis hub in Canada. It integrates medical, surgical, and basic science aspects of Hand, Orthopedics, Osteoporosis, and Rheumatology, with a vision of making revolutionary impacts in discovery, education, and the diagnosis and treatment of patients with arthritis.

As part of People & Culture's vision for UHN as a high-performing learning organization, we launched a pilot of
Percipio, a new learning tool with a rich library of multimedia content, which has been running from May 23 to Nov. 30.Since all TeamUHN members can access Percipio from the
MyLearning home page, we hope that you have accessed this tool and found it beneficial to your continued learning and development. In order to help our team better understand where impact is occurring and how we might improve our learning programs for even greater effect, we ask you to take 5 minutes to complete an anonymous Percipio Effectiveness Survey running until Sep. 13 by clicking

register for UHN Foundation's Rally for Rehab on Sunday, Sept. 10, in support of Toronto Rehab. As we know, Toronto Rehab helps patients reclaim their independence after life-altering health events. We help them regain their strength, relearn vital life skills, and discover new ways to approach daily tasks so they can return to their lives. Rally for Rehab, presented by BMO, is a day of family-friendly activities and an accessible walk. I encourage TeamUHN to participate in this event and rally for those who have benefited from rehabilitation at some point in their lives. Join as an individual or round up your co-workers, family, and friends and start a team to Rally for Rehab.
