Frederick Tisdall

This page is currently being revised (updated July 26, 2018).

The Frederick Tisdall webpage and other references on our website are being revised to ensure an accurate reflection of Dr. Tisdall’s contributions to children’s health along with the recognition of the unethical research involving Indigenous communities and residential schools in the 1940’s.

SickKids has been working with Indigenous partners to be a culturally safe organization for Indigenous children and families. Guided by principles of Truth and Reconciliation, we are committed to acknowledging harmful aspects of our history with Indigenous peoples, including Dr. Tisdall’s work.
