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

Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community

The Electronic Living Lab for Interdisciplinary Cancer Survivorship Research (ELLICSR) is celebrating its official opening on June 4 and UHN staff are invited to attend an open house from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
ELLICSR was made possible by a grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Research Fund. It is a spacious community centre with teaching and self management areas for patients and survivors that include: a full kitchen, a community resource space, consultation rooms, and an exercise room. It is fully wired to support virtual programming, community connections and global collaborations. There is a research team on-site who are keen to investigate new and interesting strategies to improve the cancer experience.
"Finally we have a space that allows us to teach important life skills around diet and exercise, proven approaches to improve side effects of treatment as well as overall health and quality of life," says Dr. Pamela Catton, Medical Director of the Cancer Survivorship Program, and Founding Director of ELLICSR.
Come and learn more about how programs at ELLICSR can improve the patient experience with, through and beyond a diagnosis of cancer, and how you too can join the ELLICSR community.
Staff are invited to attend interactive educational activities and displays. Light refreshments will be served.
