When alumni Taufik Valiante was a child, his baseball coach’s son passed away from severe epilepsy. “I think that left a pretty indelible mark on me,” says Valiante. Eventually, that experience in his youth led a sensitive, guitar-playing boy who hated the sight of blood to become a patient advocate, neurosurgeon and researcher studying the relationship between music and epilepsy.

U of T Giving Day: Celebrating the Power of Philanthropy at Temerty Medicine

One of my favorite campus spots lies just inside the south entrance to the Medical Sciences Building (MSB). There, on a wall near a popular coffee spot, stands a series of glass panels engraved with the names of Temerty Medicine’s most generous supporters from throughout our Faculty’s long history. I’m often struck, as I observe the donor wall, that its lengthy list of names represents only a tiny fraction of the tens of thousands of individuals, families and organizations who have supported (and continue to help support) vital Temerty Medicine priorities, such as student awards, chairs and professorships, equipment, facilities, as well as our innovative research and education programs. Every one of us — each learner, researcher, clinician and staff member, in every department, division and program — benefits from these donor contributions, both directly and indirectly. Temerty Medicine simply couldn’t advance our mission on the same scale we do today without our strong foundation of philanthropic support. That’s why I’m proud to share that on March 28th , Temerty Medicine will be joining the broader U of T community in marking the University’s very first Giving Day.

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
