The Lung Health Ambassador Program (LHAP) aims to inform young students of lung health and risk factors for lung disease. Through this initiative, we aim to build a culture of young students to better understand the impact their environment has on their health, while equipping them with tools they can use and build upon. Further, we will provide teachers with resources and educational material that are in accordance with current priorities of the local schools and communities, as well as access to healthcare professionals, researchers and scientists for the local schools and their staff.
