Judith Friedland Fund

Oncology and Palliative Care

In honour of Dr. Judith Friedland, former Chair of the Department of Occupational Therapy, the Fund for Occupational Therapy in Oncology and Palliative Care recognizes Dr. Friedland’s exemplary contributions to the Department and the field of occupational therapy, as well as her other accomplishments at the University of Toronto.

The Fund is concerned with individuals dealing with the day-to-day challenges presented by a diagnosis of cancer. It is also concerned with those facing the end of life as a result of cancer or other diseases, and their profound needs for bringing closure to life roles and relationships. The purpose of the Judith Friedland fund is to promote and substantiate the role of occupational therapy in enabling individuals with cancer and those in palliative care to address their occupational goals.

The Fund provides up to $5,000 awarded annually.
