Exhibition: Stephen Bulger Gallery – Deanna Pizzitelli: Koža

Exhibition Dates: November 25, 2017 – January 13, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 25, 2-5pm
Online Preview: beginning November 18 at

TORONTO, Nov. 2017 /CNW/ - Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present "Koža", our first solo exhibition of work by emerging Canadian artist Deanna Pizzitelli.
Pizzitelli is a Canadian photo-based artist and writer. Using a variety of analogue technologies, she is interested in the contemporary expression of historical processes. Pizzitelli explores the emotional landscape as it refers to desire, eroticism, longing, and loss. Her intimately scaled photographs consider a wide range of disparate subject matter, woven together in a visual narrative, and appearing like the remains of an important photographic archive depicting a long-lost time and place.
Pizzitelli's recent series "Koža", the Slovak word for skin, was photographed during her travels over the last three years. Pizzitelli spent a year living in Slovakia, then visited various places within Europe, across Canada, and then parts of Latin America. By exploring the varying landscapes and the people within them, she documented the unfolding narrative of her own experiences. Each image represents a glimpse into a fragmented history, disjointed and retold into a new story of companionship and isolation, a search for meaning and connection amidst a backdrop of stark and lonely scenes.
"People lost in thought, landscapes stuck in time. There is a house at the bottom of a hill, a family of horses, a nesting bird. A young man sleeps in a bathtub. A woman's face is brushed by the wind. These are iterations of the same thing: anxious desire, unvoiced regret, the gradual fading of your life." – Deanna Pizzitelli
Pizzitelli completed her BFA in Photography at Ryerson University in 2011, and her MFA at the University of Arizona in 2014. She has published her work in Portfolio Eleven, Sonora Review and Yogurt Magazine, and participated in the 2010, 2011 and 2016 CONTACT Photography Festivals. Her work was recently shown at Paris Photo, Classic Photographs Los Angeles, and at AIPAD in New York.

Cardiac rehab ─ more is better, but how much is enough?

York U researcher finds amount of cardiac rehab that can lower chances of dying or hospitalization for a heart event

TORONTO,  November, 2017 – Researchers from York University’s Faculty of Health and University Health Network have found that heart patients who go to 36 sessions of cardiac rehabilitation require fewer stents, and patients who go to even 12 sessions may have lower chances of dying over the next few years.

Heart disease is among the leading burdens of disease and disability around the world. Many people living with heart disease have repeat heart problems, requiring hospitalization and heart interventions. Cardiac rehab programs are recommended to lower the chance of death and re-hospitalization by 20 per cent.

It is known that more cardiac rehab is better, but no one has ever figured out how much is enough. In a new study, Professor Sherry Grace of York U’s Faculty of Health and Sr. Scientist at University Health Network, set out to discover the minimum number of rehab sessions in which patients should take part, to lower their risk of death or hospitalization for a heart event or procedure.

The research, published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings reviewed published studies where patients received different doses of cardiac rehab. They carefully collected information from 33 studies on how many sessions of cardiac rehab patients were prescribed, recorded the corresponding deaths or hospitalizations, and then pooled all the findings.

“Patients need to make sure they get referred to cardiac rehab, and then attend at least 12 sessions-- although attending 36 would bring even better benefits,” says Grace. “Patients often report barriers to attending, and we need to do all we can to help patients overcome them so they fully participate.”

Currently there is no international standard on the ‘dose’ of cardiac rehab required. In Ontario, programs generally offer two sessions per week over five months, or 40 sessions. In the United States they get 36.

Grace says patients would achieve the benefits if they fully take advantage of these cardiac rehab programs, though more study is needed to definitively set a minimum number of sessions. “Cardiac rehab programs need enough resources in terms of space and staff to offer at least 36 sessions for patients.”

Our students receive the education they need to create big ideas that make an impact on the world.

Tourism experiences focus on creativity

STRATFORD, Ont. (September 12, 2017) – Going on end-of-summer vacation isn’t just about recharging the batteries and taking a break from work — not that there’s anything wrong with that. But it’s when travellers really get to experience the places they’re visiting and see what makes them so special that the greatest holiday memories are made.
Stratford, Bayfield and Elora & Fergus in southwestern Ontario have created a variety of new activities that are bound to make a memorable impression on visitors by helping them explore their own creativity as well as the artistic sides of the communities.

For more information on the event and lantern workshop dates please visit

Gilgan gifts $10 million to hospital's Promise Campaign to improve west end health

Peter Gilgan honours west end roots and parents with record donation to St. Joseph's Health Centre

Gilgan gifts $10 million to hospital's Promise Campaign to improve west end health
TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - September 07, 2017) - Peter Gilgan, founder and CEO of Mattamy Homes, is paying tribute to his parents and his childhood in the west end of Toronto with a $10 million donation to the Promise Campaign at St. Joseph's Health Centre. Gilgan, who was born at St. Joseph's Health Centre, is making one of the largest donations in the hospital's history to support west end community care.
One of Canada's most generous philanthropists, Gilgan has donated more than $175 million to support life-changing causes. This donation to the $70 million Promise Campaign has sentimental value for Gilgan, who along with his six siblings was born at St. Joe's. The gift will name the Gilgan Family Wing in honour of his parents and the family's strong ties to the community.
"The importance of community care, and supporting St. Joe's half-a-million neighbours who rely on this valuable community hospital, cannot be overstated," says Gilgan. "My parents started our family in this community and I was born here along with my siblings. I want to make sure that St. Joe's remains a vital community resource for all of the new families starting out here today and am proud to connect my family name to this fine health centre."
Gilgan's donation will have immediate impact and advance the campaign's goal to modernize and enhance spaces for patients, purchase new equipment and technology, and create specialized areas to meet the community's unique health needs.
"Peter Gilgan's gift is transformative for St. Joseph's. It's one of the largest in our history and will help us improve our facilities to support our west end neighbours. We'll be a better Health Centre thanks to him and are grateful that he has remembered where he and his brothers and sisters were born," says Maria Dyck, President and CEO, St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation. "Beyond dollars and cents, it marks the continued commitment of Gilgan to supporting community hospitals and great local care."
Gilgan will join forces with co-chairs of the Promise campaign, Victor Dodig, CEO and President of CIBC, and Brendan Shanahan, President of the Toronto Maple Leafs, in the Promise to make Toronto's west end one of the healthiest community in Canada. Dodig and Shanahan both have strong community ties and have committed to transform care at St. Joseph's.
"Peter's business has always been about building communities," says Dodig. "This transformative gift is pivotal to supporting this community, for the people who call it home today and for future generations to come."
Community hospitals are at the heart of a healthy community. St. Joe's sees over 500,000 visits every year and our teams provide the full spectrum of care from paediatric care to specialized services for seniors-supporting people and families through all of life's important moments.
"St. Joe's has been serving the west-end for almost 100 years and significant donations like these help the hospital to advance its vision to make this community one of the healthiest in Canada," said Dr. Bob Howard, Interim President CEO of the newly integrated health network which includes Providence Healthcare, St. Joseph's Health Centre and St. Michael's Hospital. "We are thankful for the generosity of the Gilgan family."
