TO Health! announces its evolution and Summit to make Toronto region cluster Top 5 in 10

On February 24, TO Health!'s inaugural Top 5 in 10 Summit will connect business leaders, academics, elected officials and policy makers from across the Toronto region.

TORONTO, Feb. 2, 2016 /CNW/ -TO Health! today announced its evolution and strategy to raise the profile of the Toronto Region Human Health and Sciences (HHS) cluster. The vision of the initiative is to make the Toronto region a Top 5 global health science cluster in the next 10 years.

With the support of its founding partner, Toronto Region Board of Trade, TO Health! became an independently governed promotion organization as of January 1, 2016. MaRS Discovery District is providing the legal and administrative functions for the initiative in 2016 as an in-kind contribution.

"Though we have all the right components, Toronto region's HHS cluster remains below the global radar as a top place to attract businesses, talent and investment," said Dr. Barry McLellan, President & CEO, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. "Our goal is more investment, more jobs and more healthcare innovation getting to commercialization and scale up."
