Understanding the body and disease process Heart & Vessels
The heart is the hardest working muscle in the human body and pumps more than 8500 litres of blood every day. The cardiovascular system is made up of the heart, major blood vessels and fine arteries that deliver blood to every part of our body.
The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame (CMHF) celebrates Canadian heroes whose work advances health in Canada and the world, fostering future generations of health professionals through the delivery of local and national youth education programs and awards.
This enduring tribute to our country’s rich medical history is showcased here and in our physical exhibit hall in London, ON.
