The Great Italian Wine Encounter (GIWE) has always focused on advancing procedures and treatments that shape the future of medicine. Through GIWE, your support of Apheresis has led to many advancements in the treatment of autoimmune diseases and blood disorders. Foothills Medical Centre has become a pioneer in providing different types of Apheresis, providing new patient treatment options years before other centres across Canada.

Proceeds from this year’s event will go towards supporting the Integrated Therapeutic Apheresis Clinic (ITAC), where huge advances are being made towards personalized medicine and customized treatments. ITAC’s clinicians and researchers are committed to achieving new heights in medicine and improving patient care. Through their commitment to research and clinical advancements the ITAC team will position Calgary as an internationally respected medical community.
