I’m pleased to share with you the full, digital version of the Spring/Summer 2018 edition of BrainMatters, this special centennial edition of our magazine-style newsletter is now in homes across the Greater Toronto Area. You can read it by visiting the Foundation website at www.baycrestfoundation.org/BrainMatters
This issue’s cover story features Canadian Women’s National Hockey Team legend and four-time Olympic gold medalist, Hayley Wickenheiser. Her important and inspiring story on brain health and recovery after concussion underscores the need to continue funding research and care at Baycrest so we can promote healthy aging at any stage of life.
Continuing our hockey theme, we present the story of Joey Arfin and the personal reasons behind his dedication to the Scotiabank Pro-Am for Alzheimer’s in support of Baycrest.
Similarly, we shine a spotlight on some of our community members who have made an impact on Baycrest through their longstanding support. A special fresh and light “brain healthy” recipe for spring and a look at the effects of cannabis on the brain help round out our content.
BrainMatters continues to bring our community vital information to get us all thinking about our best brain health at every age and stage of life.
Your donations are making a difference in the lives of patients, their caregivers and the community at large. The stories we bring to you in BrainMatters reflect how your support impacts care, research and education about brain health that will benefit all of humanity. We cannot thank you enough.
On behalf of the Baycrest Foundation, I want to wish a happy and healthy Passover or Easter to those celebrating this week, and sincerest thanks to our community-at-large for its ongoing support.
All the best,
President and CEO, Baycrest Foundation
