A breath of fresh air: Innovative partnership helps Nova Scotians in need
The School of Health Sciences is partnering with the Lung Association and the Lions Clubs to help Nova Scotians breathe better. Students in the Respiratory Therapy program are helping to refurbish Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPap) machines for the Lung Association of Nova Scotia’s Sleep Apnea Refurbishment Program.
The Lions Clubs of Nova Scotia collect gently-used CPAP and BiPAP machines on behalf of the Lung Association. The machines are then refurbished and distributed to patients who would otherwise not be able to afford this life-changing equipment.
“We are pleased to be partnering with the Lung Association of Nova Scotia on this important initiative,” said Kathy Spurr, Adjunct Assistant Professor with the Respiratory Therapy program. “This partnership with the Lung Association will provide our students with the opportunity to learn more about breathing disorders, treatment, and advocacy issues, while providing students with an opportunity to give back to their community.”
