Alumna Dr. Toni Zhong, MD’02, featured in award winning video


Spearheading humanitarian surgical missions to developing countries, alumna Dr. Toni Zhong, MD’02, is featured in a video that recently won an award from the News Photographers Association of Canada.

Joined by a team of medical experts and fellow plastic surgeons from Women for Women, the video focuses on Dr. Zhong’s work performing reconstructive surgery on burn victims in Bangladesh.

Speaking about the motivations behind her outreach work in a Toronto Star article, Dr. Zhong said, “I feel a great sense of responsibility to provide surgeries to the patients who have been waiting for days and travelled so far to get here. Plastic surgeons can make a real difference in people’s lives.”
