At an evening celebration on October 7, 2013, Women’s College Hospital honoured the inaugural Frigon Blau Chair in Family Medicine Research, Dr. Onil Bhattacharyya.

Bhattacharyya, a highly respected clinician scientist, is an associate professor in the faculty of medicine at the University of Toronto. “As Frigon Blau Chair, my program of research will explore innovative models of healthcare and help develop guidelines that will improve health and the patient experience while lowering healthcare costs,” says Bhattacharyya.

The chair was made possible by a generous endowment from Louise Fast, a longtime donor and supporter of family and community medicine at Women’s College Hospital.
