Have you ever struggled to catch your breath? In Saskatchewan, one in five people do. Lung Sask is working on new and innovative ways to enhance partnerships to do our part to find solutions for emerging public health issues like the COVID-19 pandemic. The research being done in our great province is world-class, paving the way for home-grown solutions at home and beyond.
Globally, Saskatchewan is recognized for leading-edge research in respirology which relates to issues we face at home. Saskatchewan residents are exposed to radon, secondhand smoke from cannabis and tobacco, farm chemicals, and other threats to lung health. These threats prompt important studies into asthma; interstitial lung disease; lung transplantation; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); obstructive sleep apnea (OSA); and lung cancer. Research in these important areas informs treatment at home and sparks global collaborations.
Every dollar you give stays in Saskatchewan.
Every dollar raised for research in Saskatchewan stays in Saskatchewan. Provinces that invest in health research have better outcomes for their citizens. The two are intimately tied. Every dollar raised by Lung Sask directly impacts the treatment of loved ones at home.
Every dollar you give is doubled!
Did you know that over the next five years Lung Sask has partnered with the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation to contribute $1 million dollars to respiratory research? This means every dollar you give will be multiplied!
Every dollar you give supports Saskatchewan lung health research.
Annually, a series of grants will be awarded by Lung Sask and the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation to address many important lung health issues. We are thrilled to introduce you to these Saskatchewan researchers.
