Where providers and researchers come together to drive change
Known as LHF Collaborative for short, this network community of passionate and dedicated healthcare professionals and researchers believes lung health can and should be better for all Canadians.
Your expertise matters.
Your experience matters.
Your voice matters.
Powered by the Lung Health Foundation, our LHF Collaborative offers meaningful opportunity for healthcare professionals and researchers to work together and directly contribute to the design, delivery, and evaluation of strategies and policies to improve lung health in Canada. We are guided by the strategic plan of the Lung Health Foundation and are engaged throughout its work to ensure diverse perspectives and insight to contribute to impact and sustainable change.
