  • MacServe volunteer and science grad working at the hospital that saved his life

    Ben Diplock says he doesn't need to be a scientist to know that exercise helped him recover from the post-operative effects of a brain tumour. But now that he is one, he’s working to prove it – and he’s doing it at the same hospital where his life was once saved. Diplock, a psychology, neuroscience and behaviour graduand who will receive his degree Thursday, is spending the summer working with Donald Mabbott at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children.
