Monday, September 28, 2015

Canadian Blood Services is pleased to share that our CEO, Graham Sher, MD, PhD, has been recognized by his peers as one of Canada’s most powerful doctors. The announcement was made in the September 15, 2015 edition of The Medical Post, a publication of the Canadian Heathcare Network.

Dr. Sher is described as being at the helm of Canadian Blood Services for more than a decade and helping to create one of the world’s safest blood systems. He has led a variety of initiatives to help improve Canada’s organ and tissue donation and transplantation system; advocated that policymakers tap into our organization’s unique pan-Canadian experience to help address critical health-care issues; and recently established Canada’s first national public cord blood bank that will increase the chances of patients who need a stem cell transplant to find a match.

The Medical Post’s compilation of influential professionals includes an impressive array of men and women in Canadian healthcare. Canadian Blood Services is proud to see Dr. Sher included among such a distinguished group of Canadian leaders.
