The lungs are the centre of the respiratory (breathing) system. All our cells need oxygen, and our bodies need to eliminate the unwanted gas they produce - carbon dioxide. Our lungs exchange these gases every time we breath in and out.
The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame (CMHF) celebrates Canadian heroes whose work advances health in Canada and the world, fostering future generations of health professionals through the delivery of local and national youth education programs and awards.
This enduring tribute to our country’s rich medical history is showcased here and in our physical exhibit hall in London, ON.
