On November 7, 2017, The Globe and Mail hosted the 2nd annual Personal Performance Summit, at the Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto.

The event brought together more than 200 attendees with international experts, Globe journalists and Medcan doctors who shared their insights and expertise on the topics of wellness, performance and longevity. We would like to extend our appreciation to the sponsors, speakers, and attendees whose participation made it all possible. We hope to see you next year!
