The Lung Health Foundation is dedicated to ending gaps in the prevention, diagnosis, and care of lung disease. But when we shared our first Good News Tuesday post last week, we had no idea what an impact we’d have on ending another mounting gap: the need for hope.
This week, our theme is you.
We’re celebrating Canadians who are using their professional and personal skills to bring creative solutions and outside-the-box thinking to the fight against COVID-19. We are highlighting the people who are working to preserve hope in the face of a serious infectious respiratory illness, in any way they can.
Lung health matters. And thanks to you, lung health starts now.

Distilleries for disinfectants
CANADA-WIDE: Distilleries switch from making alcoholic drinks to making COVID-busting hand sanitizer
Following the World Health Organization’s recipe, distilleries from British Columbia to Nova Scotia have found a unique way to make a difference using their existing facilities and high proof alcohol: they’re switching to hand sanitizer production.
While proper handwashing with soap and water is the best way to clean germs from your hands, hand sanitizer plays an important role when running water isn’t available.
Cheers to the brewmasters and distillers who are thinking outside the box — and outside the bottle — to address a gap.
