“Because the Sam Katz Community Health and Aging Research Unit is based within a community, we are able to study aging and health where older people live. Our students, collaborators and professors have the ability to conduct valuable research and teaching opportunities that are advancing better health outcomes for seniors. This is possible through the generous support from Minto Foundation Inc.”

Faculty of Health Sciences

“As the recipient of the James and Ellen Baird Ontario Graduate Scholarship, I’m grateful for the support I’ve received to complete a Masters in Music – a pursuit I have found personally fulfilling and professionally rewarding. The excellent guidance I have received at Western has given me the confidence and the performance experience I needed to embark on a challenging and competitive career in opera.”

“When I was in Grade 12, my father was diagnosed with blocked heart arteries. I vividly remember sitting with my mother as the doctor explained the procedure my father needed to survive. I knew, right then, what I wanted to do – help people like my father. Years later, I’m doing just that. As the first to hold the Ray and Margaret Elliott Chair in Surgical Innovation, I’m grateful for the opportunity to be at the forefront of surgical care, education and research.”

Dr. Bob Kiaii, Chief of Cardiac Surgery
