Media Advisory - Women's College Hospital Foundation Assembles a High-Profile Panel For Annual Event

TORONTO, Nov. 9, 2016 /CNW/ - Women's College Hospital Foundation (WCHF) is pleased to host the sixth annual Women for Women's luncheon in support of Women's College Hospital, Canada's leading healthcare institution dedicated to transforming healthcare for women.

With a special focus on preparing for a healthy future and living well while caring for an aging parent or loved one, WCHF has assembled an engaging panel of medical experts and community leaders to provide real perspectives from real women managing these issues, every day.


Panel discussion will focus on:

  • The complexities of aging from the perspective of medical care, mental health, family dynamics, social impact, etc.;
  • The "sandwich generation"- balancing the demands of caring for aging parents while also caring for children and managing a career;
  • Shifting roles as women: caring and being cared for as we move through different phases of life;
  • How women and their loved ones can navigate challenging conversations about future care options, and resources they can access to support this process; and
  • How women and their loved ones can age well and maintain health, independence, and dignity, as they grow older.


Panelists include:

  • Dr. Danielle Martin, Moderator - Vice-President Medical Affairs & Health System Solutions & Senior Fellow, WCH Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care
  • Dr. Onil Bhattacharyya - Frigon-Blau Chair in Family Medicine Research and family physician, Women's College Hospital
  • Hazel McCallion, CM, Former Mayor of Mississauga

Jully Black, Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter, will also be joining the event as a special musical guest, and performing a special song written for her mom.


  • Thursday, November 10th at The Royal York from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
