8th Annual Bloorview Research Institute Symposium

Two people looking at a poster presentation.

Holland Bloorview had the pleasure of hosting the Dr. Michael Merzenich, Professor Emeritus at the University of California San Francisco and Co-Founder & Chief Scientific Officer of the Brain Plasticity Institute to deliver the keynote Mickey Milner Professorship Lecture at the November 2013 symposium.  

Based on the theme The Brain, this year’s symposium highlighted the cutting-edge research happening at the hospital, along with some innovative new client-focused programs including a Lived Experience panel with Holland Bloorview youth clients, and a multi-perspective Crosstalk debate on the value of walking.

Additionally we want to thank Marcy White, a parent and member of the BRI Family Engagement Committee co-hosted the event with Dr. Tom Chau, bringing a family perspective to all aspects of the day.
