Veronica Marcos has worked at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre for nearly as long as she has been in Canada: more than 40 years.
After immigrating to Canada from a small town in mainland Portugal in 1968, Veronica’s dream was to work in healthcare. A few years later, she landed a position in Nutrition Services at the Princess Margaret on Sherbourne St., and has worked at the hospital ever since.
You are listening to UHN Home, where we're telling stories to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. Every week, we'll tell you the stories of people who came from all around the world and stories of people whose families have called Canada home for thousands of years. They all work at the nation's largest research hospital: the University Health Network.
