Young scientists and entrepreneurs shine at ICAIR
The KITE Research Institute at UHN and the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto hosted the inaugural International Conference on Aging, Innovation, and Rehabilitation (ICAIR) on May 8.
The conference served as a platform to drive interdisciplinary collaboration between scientists, clinicians, students, and entrepreneurs in the rehabilitation space who are working to improve the lives of people around the world living each day with the impacts of illness, disability and aging.
ICAIR, held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, was designed to help researchers, academics, entrepreneurs and other innovators share research and academic success stories, build and foster relationship across disciplines, and encourage cross-pollination of communication, research and ideas.
More than 600 attendees from nine countries were treated to a glimpse of the future of rehabilitation science through the Poster, Power Play and Three Minute Talk competitions.
Video competition promotes the benefits of organ donation to young audiences and educators
Four young creatives from Ontario are winners of "Share the Shorts," a video competition at UHN's Ajmera Transplant Centre, which aims to promote awareness of organ donation.
Selby Moses is the lead for the winning team of Grade 7 students. The four of them decided to participate in #SharetheShorts when their teacher, a living kidney transplant recipient and a member of UHN's Centre for Living Organ Donation's ACB Organ Health YouTube Committee, told them about the competition.
"We wanted to spread awareness about organ transplant and why donating is important," says Selby.
#SharetheShorts is a youth video creation competition, sponsored by UHN's Ajmera Transplant Centre, aiming to engage students and educators in the creation of informative content that will appeal to younger and more diverse audiences.
Young creatives worked collaboratively in their schools and to submit short videos with diverse perspectives and themes. The Ajmera Transplant Centre had three winners in the previous round of the competition, a group from Manitoba, another from Quebec and Selby's group in Ontario.
The next submission deadline is June 16.

New name; new level of service
An exciting relaunch of Toronto Rehab's Staffing Office has taken place.
Now branded as the Staffing Resource Team, the SRT is where units across the institution can call to get quick staff vacancy coverage. The name change comes as a way to better highlight the role the team plays at TR.
Other changes include longer hours of operation and a larger float pool of staff, who are part of TeamUHN and familiar with internal process.
As manager April Huang highlights, it is more than just an office.
"We are excited to introduce a name that reflects both what we do, and our continual expansion of skilled professionals, including registered nurses, registered practical nurses and personal support workers who provide excellent care to patients across our sites," April says.
