Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
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.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community

Tomorrow is World Cancer Day, an international day founded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).
This year's theme is 'We can. I can.' It's about how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.
According to the UICC, 8.2 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which, 4 million people die prematurely (aged 30 to 69 years).
World Cancer Day is an opportunity to raise awareness, provide education and take action.
Stay tuned this week
Tomorrow staff, patients, and volunteers at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre are sharing their 'We can' or 'I can' statements to raise awareness and support those fighting the disease.
They're also lending a hand on social media by writing their supportive statements on their hands, taking a photo, and tweeting it using the hashtags #WeCanICan and #WorldCancerDay.
Join us in spreading the message by sharing these photos or tweeting your 'We Can' or I Can' message on your hand and tag @UHN_News.
Also this week, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation (The PMCF) is raising awareness of World Cancer Day with their
#NoHairSelfie social media campaign.
The #NoHairSelfie campaign invites participants to physically shave their head or to undergo a "virtual shave" using the free mobile app to show solidarity with patients undergoing cancer treatments.
As a result of last year's success, the campaign has gone global with the Israel Cancer Association and the Cancer Association of South Africa joining the #NoHairSelfie movement.
Tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. in the 7th floor atrium at Princess Margaret you can join The PMCF at the #NoHairSelfie media conference and watch the top fundraising shavers lose their locks.
