University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.

Did you know that the Universal African Black Cross Nurses (BCN) – established on the same principles as the World War I nursing model of the Red Cross – began in 1920 in Philadelphia? The BCN was established by Henrietta Vinton Davis to provide medical services and education to Black people.
It later expanded beyond the United States, with chapters being established in Canada and throughout the Caribbean.
This year, UHN's Black History Month Committee is honouring pioneers such as Henrietta Davis who have made lasting contributions to healthcare. The details of their contributions are being highlighted throughout the month of February at various UHN sites.
This year's theme, "health equity, the social determinants of health and its impacts when Blacks and marginalized patients seek healthcare," features heavily in scheduled presentations and special lectures.
UHN's Black History Month (BHM) celebrations began on Jan. 30 at the BMO Education and Conference Centre at Toronto Western Hospital with presentations from Mr. Francis Jeffers, founder and curator of the Canadian Multicultural Inventors Museum, and Dr. Lisa Richardson, Clinician-educator and faculty co-Lead in Indigenous Medical Education for the University of Toronto's MD program, who presented on "cultural safety and culturally safe institutions for structurally marginalized patients."
It has continued throughout the month with various other events and presentations.
UHN staff, physicians and volunteers are invited to come out and listen to one of our amazing speakers. There's also travelling exhibits, which profile innovators from the African, Indigenous and LGBTQ+ medical communities. Here is a list of upcoming events:
Light refreshments will be served.
