Meet the Lung Health Foundation
At the Lung Health Foundation, our unwavering commitment is to support and empower individuals living with lung disease across Canada. Through our range of community initiatives, grass-roots educational programs, research and advocacy, we elevate awareness and foster a compassionate environment for those affected by lung conditions, including their caregivers. We are dedicated to improving the lung health of Canadians.
For more than a century, the Ontario Lung Association worked tirelessly to be the recognized leader, voice and primary resource in lung health. Meanwhile, lung disease continued to place a profound burden on patients and their families, and placed a large – and growing – economic burden on every provincial healthcare system across Canada.
Given the staggering gaps we had uncovered in the prevention, diagnosis, and care of lung disease, it became clear that it was time to bring the staff and board of the association together to make some big, bold changes to our approach.
In 2020 and beyond, we are charting a new path forward. We are empowering all Canadians to improve their lung health.
We are the Lung Health Foundation. And lung health starts now!
