Celebrating Women's Impact

This Women’s History Month, we’re digging into Women’s College Hospital’s archives to share the extraordinary contributions of trailblazing women from our past who have made an indelible impact on healthcare in Canada.

Join us in celebrating Women’s History Month by honouring a trailblazer in your life! Throughout October, when you make a donation in honour of an inspiring woman, you will have an opportunity to choose from a series of special e-cards showcasing the pioneers of Women’s College Hospital.

 

Women's making history:

revolutionizing cancer care


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that in 1948, WCH opened the first cancer detection clinic for women in Ontario? Since then we’ve been at the forefront of transforming cancer research, treatment and care for women.
