EXTERNAL: Bruyère Month


This September, Bruyère is proud to be launching the inaugural Bruyère Month in Ottawa presented by Emond Harnden. This month-long event is dedicated to sharing with our community how Bruyère is moving people in an effort to raise funds to advance care and research across Bruyère’s three campuses.

Bruyère Research Institute will also be hosting interactive panel discussions throughout the month to showcase how research being done at the bedside across Bruyère campuses lends itself to improvements in the quality of care, and enhances quality of life of patients, residents and their families.

Tune into CTV, CFRA and follow us on social media at @bruyerecare to stay up to date on our Bruyère Month activities.


This year we will have two dates lined up to share the posters and video snapshots. Take this opportunity to chat live with presenters and network! Can’t make it? Register to the event and take time to view this incredible work, which will remain online from September 16 to 30.
