Report from the Board Chair
Advancing Respiratory Innovation and Healthcare through Philanthropy
We’re all in this together when it comes to improving respiratory healthcare. Your generous donations have made a big impact in British Columbia by providing hospitals with essential respiratory equipment.
At Royal Columbian Hospital, Liz Rohrs PhD. and her team are studying how long-term ventilation affects patients. This research is vital for understanding how to better care for people with respiratory issues.
Jossef Av-Gay PhD and his team at UBC are undertaking incredible research on Tuberculosis. They’ve found a faster and less expensive way to develop drugs to fight this deadly disease.
We’re also investing in the education of Respiratory Therapy students at Thompson Rivers University. By doing this, we’re helping to train a skilled workforce ready to tackle the complex respiratory challenges of the future.
A big thank you goes out to our Board of Directors for their dedication. Their hard work and commitment ensures we continue to provide lifesaving respiratory equipment to those who need it most. We remain dedicated to making a meaningful impact on the community while paying homage to our deep-rooted Veteran history.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you for your unwavering support.
With Sincere Gratitude
