The past 12 months have been a historic period of challenge and change for Canadian health care charities. The pandemic has impacted how they fundraise, conduct research programs, engage donors and volunteers, and ultimately deliver support to Canadians living with disease. Despite this, health charities have adapted and found new ways to operate virtually, help to slow the spread of COVID-19 and support Canadians in need.
In this episode, the Health Charities Coalition of Canada, ALS Canada and Diabetes Canada discuss the agility and adaptability of Canadian health charities.
Elisabeth Baugh is the CEO of Ovarian Cancer Canada and the Chair of the Health Charities Coalition of Canada.
Tammy Moore is the CEO of ALS Canada and has been involved in the ALS community for over a decade.
And Dr. Seema Nagpal is the Vice President, Science and Policy at Diabetes Canada where she guides the research funding program.
