Schulich Medicine & Dentistry stands with the Muslim community

We at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry join colleagues across Western University in shock and profound sadness in response to the racist, Islamophobic attack on a London family. This was an unspeakable and senseless act of hatred against members of the Muslim community.

Our thoughts go out to family members, friends and the entire Muslim community. Schulich Medicine & Dentistry stands with you united in grief and sorrow.

We are here to support you.

We extend our gratitude to the first responders and the clinical teams who provided care and comfort to the family and continue to care for the young boy who remains in hospital.

Many of us have been left shaken, grieving and feeling unsafe because of this tragedy. If you need support, please reach out in the following ways;
