Your donation helps local research transform care on Vancouver Island.
Donor funding enables and supports a wide range of Island Health research that:
- Creates new knowledge to improve health and care in our communities
- Discovers the most effective ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases through clinical trials
- Engages staff and clinicians by working together with researchers to ensure that the right patient receives the right treatment at the right time
- Applies research evidence to improve health services, support policy decisions, and strengthen our healthcare system
Island Health is home to world-renowned clinicians and researchers making a difference in care not only locally, but also influencing healthcare delivery provincially, nationally, and globally.
“When a cognitive health illness impacted our family and we began to understand this issue, we realized that while much research had been done, there is still so much more to do to solve the riddles around cognitive diseases. We reached out to the healthcare professionals in Victoria and asked how can we help? The vision they created for this project resonated with us. It is our great hope that the knowledge gathered will, in time, help thousands of patients.”
