Coming in 2021
A brain aneurysm can stop a heart. A heart attack can cause a stroke.
Turns out the brain and heart are more intricately connected than we may have imagined.
So why are they treated separately across the world?
At St. Michael’s Hospital, they’re not. In fact, we’ve created a state-of-the-art hub for our legendary brain and heart specialists to tackle the toughest neurosurgical and cardiac cases.
It sounds simple. In reality, it’s a transformational model of care that is at the vanguard of medicine.
Join us at Angel Ball 2021 and revolutionize brain and heart care.
