More To Life

The appearance of SARS last year - and West Nile disease before that - proved we were wrong. SARS was not the first disease to suddenly emerge without a cure and it won't be the last. But how do we cope in this not-so-brave new world? Dr. David McNeely is an Infectious Disease Specialist at the University Health Network, Toronto Western Division. He also delivers a course called "Emerging Diseases: What you need to know" at the University of Toronto's Mini-Med School. A visionary and entrepreneur, Ontario university student Anne Swift was recently profiled in Glamour Magazine as "one of the top ten college women who will change the world". She's an inventor herself and the founder of Young Inventors International. All this by the age of 22.
