A Healthy Lungs Election Pledge Called For

The Ontario Lung Association says that even though one in five people in Ontario has a serious lung disease, there is no coordinated provincial plan to address the growing lung health crisis. That is why they are asking candidates in the June 12th election to sign the “4 Lung Years Pledge,” a promise that if elected they will support a comprehensive Lung Health Action Plan for Ontario. During the campaign, the Ontario Lung Association and its lung health advocates will be using social media to encourage party leaders and candidates to share photos of their signed 4 Lung Years Pledge. All Ontarians are invited to join the conversation, and share why they feel lung health should be made a priority, using hashtag #4LungYears. Of the four chronic diseases responsible for eight of ten deaths in Ontario: cancer, cardiovascular diseases, lung disease and diabetes, only lung disease does not have its own coordinated provincial strategy.
