On November 9, two Princess Margaret employees were awarded with a Gerald Kirsh Humanitarian Award: Nazanin Nouriany, a Clinical Trial Nurse on the 18th floor, and Eleanor Szakacs, Early Childhood Educator at The Magic Castle. The Kirsh Awards are awarded annually to PMH staff members and volunteers who demonstrate an outstanding commitment to humanitarian care for cancer patients.
The Gerald Kirsh Humanitarian Awards were established by the late Gerald Kirsh and his family to pay tribute to the exceptional care they witnessed and received while at PMH. Throughout the year, patients and their families are encouraged to nominate any staff member or volunteer who they believe exemplify PMH's six core values. This year is the 10th anniversary of the awards.
For more information or to nominate a PMH staff member for the 2010 Gerald Kirsh Humanitarian Awards, please visit www.uhn.ca/pmh/services or email KirshAwards@pmhf.ca.
