Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
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.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

What is the number one piece of advice you give to your patients to empower them to improve their heart health?
Patients often tell me how much they benefit from learning how to read labels on food packages. The education they receive around label reading allows them to look past the claims on the front of the package and go straight to the facts where they can decide for themselves if they want a certain product. When patients understand how to interpret the information on food labels, they are empowered because they not only recognize what is in a product, but they can then make an informed choice about whether or not to consume that product.
What is the one thing that you do to maintain your heart health?I focus on including a diet that is mostly plant-based and I exercise daily either by running and/or doing yoga.
