  • Optimizing a High-Risk Child’s Potential: Researchers and Parents Working Together

    Bloomberg Nursing is proud to present a special lecture & presentation, led by Prof. Margo Pritchard, the Frances Bloomberg Distinguished International Visiting Professor, and Aliza Karoly from the Family Centre Care Advisory Council at SickKids.

    Invitation to September 21st Event

    Despite evidence of beneficial effects, early identification and intervention strategies have not greatly impacted child development with substantial proportions of children worldwide categorised as developmentally vulnerable at school entry.

    Whilst there are numerous vulnerable paediatric groups, preterm birth is important because it is the leading cause of perinatal mortality and morbidity worldwide. To date, preventing prematurity and its impact on developmental outcome has been elusive, necessitating an urgent need for efficient and effective long-term surveillance strategies.

    Professor Pritchard will discuss the impact of prematurity on child development with the main emphasis on the early detection of emerging problems and risk-factors and whether improved outcomes can be achieved with innovative parent-family led interventional approaches.

    DATE: September 21, 2015
    TIME: 5:30-7:00pm
    LOCATION: MaRS Auditorium, Lower Concourse, MaRS Discovery District, 101 College St, Toronto ON

  • Dinner with 12 Strangers

    Dinner with 12 Strangers is based on a simple idea: local alumni host dinners in their own homes for students, faculty and fellow alumni in an effort to make U of T a smaller, friendlier place.

    A Faculty of Nursing alum will host students, alumni and faculty for an evening of good food and good conversation. The program offers participants an opportunity to make new friends, valuable connections and to strengthen the U of T community.

    Dinners will take place during the academic year and on a weeknight (excluding Fridays) from approximately 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

    If this sounds like a program you may be interested in, please contact our Alumni Relations office at (416) 946-7097 or .
