Our website https://cdnmedhall.ca/ holds our entire Laureate collection.

Currently, we have 143 Laureates who each have their own biographical page on our website. Each page has pictures of the Laureates as well as a detailed listing of awards, key facts, a biography, a professional timeline and additional resources. Each Laureate also has a tribute video that speaks to their major accomplishments, their leadership abilities and the soft skills they possess, as told my their colleagues and students.

Our website allows users to explore the impact of all CMHF Laureates by navigating through three main themes:
1) Understanding the body and disease process | Science & Research
2) Improving health and patient outcomes | Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention
3) Building our health organizations and systems | Pioneers, leaders, scholars and change makers

Each of these themes houses an impact map that charts Laureate accomplishments/discoveries related to a particular disease or health field.
