Over the years, advances in medicine have enhanced the quality of life and extended the lifespan for people throughout our province. Since the 1960s, Vancouver Foundation health and medical research grants have played a part, funding projects with wide-ranging health impacts—from studies to assist practitioners who look after our frail and elderly, to research into emerging health concerns of children in remote communities.
By providing funding for innovative research, student bursaries in the health sciences, and skills development, Vancouver Foundation is supporting new approaches to community health and ensuring British Columbians play an active role in the well-being of their communities.
Grants from this program are generously provided through the BC Medical Services Foundation (BCMSF) as well as similarly designated funds within Vancouver Foundation.
