Message from SHN CEO and UTSC Principal

Hello fellow healthcare and academic professionals, leaders, learners, researchers and partners,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to Shaping the Future of Care: Eastern GTA Healthcare Conference, jointly organized by Scarborough Health Network and the University of Toronto Scarborough. We encourage you to join us for this inaugural year which promises two days packed with illuminating and informative presentations from renowned speakers, as well as engaging, interactive sessions.

We have an urgent need to address the under-met health needs of the eastern Greater Toronto Area (GTA), including Scarborough and Durham Region. This conference will allow for sharing bold ideas, lessons and innovations that uniquely come from understanding the healthcare needs of our region. You will hear about the work being done to establish Scarborough as a centre of excellence in healthcare academia and research; as well as have the opportunity to learn about our two institutions’ partnership on Scarborough Academy of Medicine and Integrated Health (SAMIH) – an education hub in the Eastern GTA that will train the next generation of healthcare professionals, improving the quality and capacity for care in our region.

Come and be a part of this occasion for celebration, discovery and learning. We look forward to deepening connections and sharing in this step on the journey to shape the future of care.

Cheers,

David Graham
Interim President and CEO, SHN

Dr. Wisdom Tettey
Vice President and Principal, UTSC

About the conference

This ground-breaking two-day conference celebrates the recently announced creation of the Easter GTA’s all-new medical healthcare education hub at University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC) –the Scarborough Academy of Medicine and Integrated Health (SAMIH), and the partnership between Scarborough Health Network (SHN) and SAMIH as we work together to establish Scarborough as a centre of excellence in healthcare academia and research.

We are inviting all healthcare professionals, clinicians and leaders from all disciplines, as well as anyone with an interest in advancing health care.

What to expect

Together, we will share and learn about the bold ideas, lessons and innovations that uniquely come from understanding the healthcare needs of Scarborough and the Eastern GTA. With our communities’ incredible diversity, we are a microcosm of Canada’s future — and the insights that we provide about health care here will have applications for health systems across the country.
