Imagine a future where people living with lung cancer have a fighting chance, where no one loses a loved one to asthma, where people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) live their lives to the fullest, where older adults don't lose their independence in life, and where future generations don't suffer the debilitating effects of lung disease.
The Lung Health Foundation is committed to making this future a reality. And this new future starts now.
The Lung Health Foundation's mission is to improve the lung health of Canadians, and we will achieve this through:
And at the heart of it all? Helping those who have been impacted by lung disease.
With an exciting new strategic vision to help Canadians breathe, the Lung Health Foundation is looking for its first Lung Cancer Program Lead to bring the necessary experience, passion and creativity to make a significant difference in the lives of lung cancer patients and their caregivers.
Reporting to the Manager of Patient Partnerships and Community Programs, the Lead will plan, develop and implement navigation tools, program supports and resources that will improve the health and quality of life for patients living with lung cancer within Ontario and across Canada. With a patient-centered approach, this position will aim to give people living with lung cancer a fighting chance by working to eliminate the barrier of stigma and increase survivorship. Given the clinical nature of the role, the Lung Cancer Supports and Program Lead should have related experience in oncology.
This role is outward-facing working directly with providers, health system partners, community partners and patients in designing, executing and evaluating implementation efforts.
