More than 350 guests braved the cold on the evening of November 13, 2019 to attend our annual Behind the Scenes at the MUHC event in the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC).
Every year, loyal donors of the MUHC Foundation are offered the chance to meet and speak with hospital staff as they share insight into the work they do. Physicians, nurses, researchers, and medical students all set up displays across dozens of kiosks, outlining the exceptional care, research, and medical training being offered at the MUHC.
“We are proud to have so many dedicated physicians and researchers at our hospital,” says MUHC Foundation President Julie Quenneville. “During this unique event, our donors are able to get exclusive access, and see what goes on behind the scenes here at the MUHC. It gives our community a better appreciation of how hard the team here works, and it allows staff to interact with the people who support philanthropy in health care.”
From discovering the role of liquid biopsies in cancer detection, to testing the strength of your lungs and understanding why high blood sugar causes kidney disease – there is something for every visitor to Behind the Scenes at the MUHC.
