Dr. Rupinder Toor--Empowering Women

Dr. Rupinder Toor--Empowering Women Chris Bolin

Dr. Rupinder Toor is a medical doctor who is passionate about women’s health and believes that empowering women through reproductive health is the key to building strong families and communities. She has proven to be a champion, innovator and thought leader in the areas of women’s health, birth control, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and culturally appropriate health care and has successfully redefined women’s health as a primary care speciality.

Dr. Toor has received national recognition and awards for her work, including the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal, College of Family Physicians of Canada Award of Excellence, the University Of Calgary Cumming School of Medicine Alumni of Distinction award, and the Legacy Award from the Calgary Board of Education, to name a few.

In 2020, Dr Toor and her team is launching Project EmpowHER, a new not-for-profit, that will focus on empowering women, especially vulnerable girls, by improving awareness and access to long acting birth control.
