Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario

The Heart and Stroke Foundation is a major supporter of the Faculty of Health Sciences, contributing millions of dollars during the past decade to advance research and developments in the fight against heart disease and stroke.

The foundation has contributed $5 million to establish endowed chairs, including the Faculty of Health Sciences’ first-ever endowed chair: the Heart and Stroke Foundation Chair in Cardiovascular Disease, launched in 1997, proved to be the start of a successful initiative to make endowed chairs an integral part of the University’s research endeavours. There are now more than 50 endowed chairs in the Faculty of Health Sciences.

The foundation also provided the funds to launch an endowed chair in cardiovascular research, another in cardiovascular nursing, and a fourth in population health research.

In addition, the foundation contributes several millions of dollars a year to many research studies conducted by investigators at McMaster University.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation is a voluntary, non-profit organization with a mission to improve the health of Canadians by preventing and reducing disability and death from heart disease and stroke, through research, health promotion and advocacy.
