Chatting with Cityline’s Tracy Moore on her role in Canada’s hottest medical research competition, Angels Den
The last year has shone a spotlight on the crucial role of our medical community in Canada, and with so much of the future of medicine depending on today’s great minds, finding new ways to showcase these ideas and fund research is key.
Cue Angels Den – Canada’s most virtuous competition show, in support of St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation.
From modernizing mental health programming in schools to developing next-generation cancer treatment, and remote brain surgery technology – six top-class medical teams will enter the gates of the Angels Den to pitch their best and brightest ideas to three celebrity judges – including Cityline’s award-winning host Tracy Moore – for a chance to win $500,000 in funding for their ground-breaking research projects.
As a committed advocate for diversity and inclusion, and an active volunteer with Trust 15 and the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada, Tracy Moore brings her passion for people and innovation to the Angels Den table.
We sat down with Tracy to hear more about what it means to her to be part of this one-of-a-kind experience:
