To support our colleagues in pharmacy worldwide, experts at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy developed a virtual demonstration of how to prepare the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. This video has been viewed more than 50,000 times and has bolstered the pandemic response in countries like Australia where it is being used as part of a training package for Queensland Health’s surge workforce.

Expert Panel on Managing Pain

Last fall over 1,400 alumni and community members registered for a live webinar featuring Dr. Rob Bonin from Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy as well as a panel of experts from University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry, Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing and Temerty Faculty of Medicine for a presentation on how the University of Toronto Centre for the Study of Pain is advancing our understanding of the complexities, impact, and treatment of pain.
