Ride to Conquer Cancer
This weekend thousands of cyclists gathered in Toronto and Niagara for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation’s (PMCF) Ride to Conquer Cancer. This year marked the ride’s 10-year anniversary and was the best ride yet, with 5,042 riders raising a record of $20.5 million! The success of this event is a testament to the incredible commitment and hard work of the PMCF, the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and the thousands of men and women who are committed to the cause.
Each year UHN staff, patients, donors and friends support the ride by participating, volunteering and cheering the riders on – we even had a record number of UHN staff participating in this year’s ride! We are so fortunate to have such strong support from the UHN community and I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who was involved in this year’s ride. Your support is helping us transform lives.
Michener’s 2017 Honourary Diploma Recipient
Last week I had the privilege to celebrate Dr. Winston Isaac, the recipient of Michener’s 2017 Honourary Diploma in Health Sciences. Michener’s Honourary Diploma is awarded to those who have made an outstanding contribution in health care and applied health sciences. Dr. Isaac is a distinguished health care educator and innovator with experience working in acute care, rehabilitation, as well as chronic and complex long-term care. He is also a Michener alum, graduating from the Respiratory Therapy Program, and former staff member, working in Respiratory Therapy as a Clinical Coordinator and Program Director. Dr. Isaac also spent a year as the school’s Director. His contributions over the years have made him an important member of the Michener community. The reception was a wonderful opportunity to honour and celebrate Dr. Isaac’s continued commitment to health care and the school.
Reflections on our journey: UHN’s Purpose, Values & Principles
Over the past several months, I have watched our new Purpose, Values & Principles (PVP) come alive across UHN. From good catches raised during safety huddles, to helping patients access their records electronically, there are countless ways that the UHN community is living these values every day.
But it’s about more than the final product – the journey we took as one organization to reassess and refine our PVP was incredible. I’ve spent many months telling this story – to our staff, external stakeholders, patients…really, anyone who will listen. Recently, I wrote about that journey, sharing my thoughts, comments and personal views on this process, which you can read here. Reflecting on this process has made me so proud of the work we have done together, as one UHN.
