Leaders in Innovation Dinner 2017

RomneysJoin us for the Leaders in Innovation Dinner - London's premier event celebrating research. The evening will include the presentation of the J. Allyn Taylor International Prize in Medicine - one of Canada's most prestigious research awards - to V. Wee Yong, PhD, and will celebrate research advancements in the area of multiple sclerosis (MS).

Dinner guests will enjoy an engaging armchair discussion with the former First Lady and Governor of Massachusetts Ann and Mitt Romney. The 2012 Republican nominee for President of the United States stood by his wife’s side as she was diagnosed with MS in 1998. Ann has since become a champion for those fighting the disease and has volunteered much of her time to raise awareness for MS.

Last year, the Romneys launched the Ann Romney Centre for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. By raising the profile of MS, as well as raising funds for advocacy and research, the Romneys are determined to make a difference in the lives of people who suffer from the disease. Join them on November 15, as they discusses their lives, careers and their journey with MS.

Heather Hiscox MA'87, LLD'11, Anchor, CBC News Network will once again be Master of Ceremonies.
