At a recent event recognizing Dr. Gary Levy’s contributions as the first Director, Multi-Organ Transplant Program (MOTP), Scott McIntaggart, Senior Vice President, UHN and Executive Lead at Toronto General Hospital announced the creation of the Gary Levy Leadership Award.
Beginning next year, this annual award will be given to a member of the MOT program who demonstrates innovative thought and a passion to promote clinical and academic excellence in the field of transplantation.

Anyone working with MOT staff may submit a nomination to the Selection Committee. The award will be presented to the winner during National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Week (NOTDAW) in April.
The following quote, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American poet, inscribed on the plaque, succinctly sums up Dr. Levy’s leadership:
“Do not follow where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
Dr. Levy has made an impact on transplantation and inspired the intelligent capable people he recruited to be the best they can.
T​hank you, Dr. Levy, for your influence on the MOT program and the impact it has had on improving the lives of patients.​
