A bit of background

A renowned social entrepreneur and pediatrician by training, Dr. Gilles Julien became interested very early in his career in the causes of morbidity in children suffering the effects of social and economic inequalities. He made it his mission to provide disadvantaged children with the care and services they need to flourish and reach their full potential. In 1997, he opened the first community social pediatrics centre in Montreal. Mrs. Hélène (Sioui) Trudel enriched the community social pediatrics model by adding a legal foundation in 2006, and then by founding Garage à musique in 2009.
