2012 – Alumnae Endowment Fund Launched

Many Alumnae members, SickKids Foundation and hospital staff gathered to celebrate the launch of the Endowment Fund and to hear Judith Young, RN, MScN speak on innovations in care over the first 100 years (1886-1975), all introduced at the hospital by nurses or relied on nurses for their success.  While we know we need to hear another talk on nursing innovations in the years since 1975, we were very proud to hear again how HSC nurses throughout the decades changed the way we care for children in our community and in the world.  Many of us studied and worked at SickKids in those years and led the way to change.  Thanks to Judith for her presentation and for the walk down memory lane in pictures.

Now, through the Endowment Fund, the Alumnae will continue to support nursing excellence and innovation through grants for projects that will continue to improve care.

We look forward to meeting again next year, hearing about more about the priceless contributions nurses make to care, and hearing from the first recipients of our Endowment Fund.
