Respiratory Health Forum

Welcome to the 2020 Respiratory Health Forum

The Respiratory Health Forum (RHF) is an annual event funded by the Ministry of Health, Asthma and COPD Program. It is an opportunity for primary healthcare professionals in Ontario to learn and network with other FHTs, CHCs and other multidisciplinary settings.

It’s an excellent opportunity to participate in a range of innovative sessions headed by leading medical professionals to learn about new approaches to lung health, get updates on new respiratory guidelines, and participate in interactive workshops. This year, in response to COVID-19, we will be hosting the forum virtually in the fall to address site interests and needs.
