2020 Corporate Award
Sunnybrook Twins Research Center
The MADA CORPORATE award is presented to an individual, business, corporation or organization who at the national level, in their professional capacity, created an awareness of the challenges faced by Canada's multiple birth children and their families, and/or have made a significant impact on the multiple-birth community and/or Multiple Births Canada.
The 2020 Winner of the Corporate Award is Sunnybrook Twins Research Centre: Dr. Nir Melamed, Dr. Jon Barrett and staff.
The vision of the Centre is to become an internationally recognized centre for the conduct of the following: Practice-changing research; Dissemination of knowledge to women and health-providers; Education of the future generations of researchers and clinicians in the field of twin pregnancies.
The research conducted by Sunnybrook's Twins Research Centre has profound impact on both the short and long-term health of twin infants and their mothers.
Many multiple birth families from across Canada find themselves at Sunnybrook for specialized care every year. It is this care that eases their minds and increases the odds of a successful multiple birth pregnancy.
I myself had the opportunity to travel down the 401 to attend a research study held at Sunnybrook and had the honor of meeting Dr Jon Barret during my triplet pregnancy.
Sunnybrook and its doctors have always been welcome to inquiries from Multiple Births Canada. They are open to answering questions, offering assistance knowing that we all have the same goal: Healthy happy multiples.
MBC has enjoyed a strong relationship with the Centre for many years and know it will continue.
Dr. Nir Melamed is the Head of the Twins Research Centre and Dr. Jon Barrett is the Division Head of Maternal Fetal Medicine and Medical Director of the Twins Clinic.
Congratulations Sunnybrook Twins Research Centre Dr. Nir Melamed, Dr. Jon Barrett and staff!
