There's no question that research is our greatest defense against lung disease, as well as our greatest tool to save lives. The innovative, cutting-edge research that takes place right here in Saskatchewan has been a mainstay of the Lung Association movement since we opened our doors over 100 years ago as the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis League. You have come to know and trust The Lung Association as the premier source of lung health information for our province. All of our quality educational materials, programs, services, and treatment guidelines are based on current, evidence-based research.
Dedicating funding to research allows us to recruit and retain the best and brightest to conduct research in Saskatchewan and provides protected time for research initiatives. Our world class researchers showcase Saskatchewan research on the national and international stage as published authors, guest lecturers, and conference presenters. They are partners, collaborators, and key decision makers regarding lung health in our great province!
