I was honoured to announce $1.25 million in funding over five years for Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre from Veterans Affairs Canada’s Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund.
The funding will help support the development of a new Neuromodulation Research Program for Veterans with
PTSD and their families, continuing Sunnybrook’s well-earned reputation both as a leading research hospital and as Canada`s foremost centre for Veterans Care.
I am proud that our government is helping to provide opportunities for great organizations, such as Sunnybrook to create new and innovative ways to care for our Veterans and their families.
Sunnybrook, and the Harquail Centre for Neuromodulation, are leading in this rapidly evolving field and this funding will help encourage and drive further innovation to provide better care to our Veterans.
Thank you to the President and CEO of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Dr. Andy Smith, as well as Dr. Nir Lipman and Dr. Peter Giacobbe, for hosting the announcement of $1.25 million in funding for Sunnybrook and explaining how this funding for a Neuromodulation Program dedicated to PTSD will help improve the lives of Veterans and their families.
Thank you as well to the Minister of Veterans Affairs, Seamus O’Regan, for his continued support of Sunnybrook’s important work to support Veterans and their families through the $1.25 million in funding announced today.
I was happy to invite Minister O’Regan to visit Sunnybrook back in June to witness first hand the great work they do, specifially their work caring for Veterans. Sunnybrook’s fantastic state-of-the-art care is a source of pride for our community, and I was happy to share that with Minister O’Regan during his visit.
