Celebrating 100 years of service
The Trudeau Society turns 100 in 2021 and marks an opportunity to recognize the legacy of Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau and the important role respiratory health plays in human life. Our work continues to focus on the future, educating lung health professionals about the latest advances in care and strengthening community-based resources.
From the beginning, Trudeau Society has been tackling the world’s most challenging transferable pulmonary diseases for more than a century. Dr. Trudeau was the first to devote himself to researching and treating tuberculosis the highly infectious disease, which took the lives of one in seven people in the 19th century, established the first Adirondack Cottage Sanitarium in 1884 in the Village of Saranac Lake which treated thousands of people afflicted with the disease, he established the first American laboratory solely dedicated to tuberculosis research. Our most enduring legacy is our members, who have gone on to be prominent researchers and lung health professionals.
As we look forward to our next 100 years, we are poised to capitalize on a range of initiatives through research and technology. The need is great, the pandemic has highlighted the important role our lungs play, wildfires are further contributing to breathing issues especially among asthmatics, and so much more needs to be learned about the longer-term impact of these factors. Our commitment to public health and innovation has compelled us to find new ways to continue the Trudeau Society as lung health issues and knowledge of lung health professionals continue to grow and evolve.
We look forward to the opportunities that the next century will bring. We have an exciting year of centennial celebrations in store. It begins with our 2021 Lung Health Conference and many innovative sessions throughout the year.
