Dr. Mirko S. Gilardino, MD, M.Sc., FRCSC, FACS, Director, The H.B. Williams Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery Unit of the Montreal Children’s Hospital

What started off as a passion to help, developed into a sought responsibility to give back to our community. In the hopes of raising the involvement of the McGill University student body with MCHF, Déjeun’aide will attract individuals from various levels of business who’s sponsors will help fund the event.

As part of the Young Leader’s Circle, all the proceeds will be allocated to the Craniofacial Surgery Department of the Montreal Children’s Hospital, to treat children with craniofacial anomalies (affecting the bones of the skull and face) and develop complex care plans for patients to offer each child the safest and most advanced surgical treatment possible. The families of children born with the anomalies can be confident that their child will be evaluated by a specialized pediatrician.

  • Cutting-edge medical equipment and supporting innovative programs
  • Support for research into childhood diseases
  • Advancement for teaching
