Join The Fight

Whether you donate, host a ping pong tourney, or inspire your employees to give, every contribution helps build a better SickKids.

Here’s how you can get involved.

The Cause

Tech4SickKids supports two
main initiatives:

01 AIM

Artificial Intelligence in Medicine for Kids (AIM) is an in-house resource hub to steer AI projects from lab to bedside. For example, machine-learning models that can predict cardiac arrest or return-visits to the ER. For all the hype about AI in medicine, clinical application is in its infancy. We want to blaze the trail. We want to make the hype happen. After all, if child health is the root of lifelong health, data science must start here.

Tech4SickKids wins!

In 2018, Tech4SickKids member Amar Varma supported the Varma Family Chair in Biomedical Informatics and Artificial Intelligence—the first of its kind in Canada. It was awarded to Dr. Anna Goldenberg, a leading computer scientist who wants to use her AI skills “for good.” “To be able to help children is so important because they have their whole life ahead of them,” she says. “We can actually make a huge difference here.” Read more here .

In 2018, a group of Tech4SickKids founders and companies pledged an investment to modernize our aging emergency department—a huge win for our 80,000 yearly ER patients.
