We’re thrilled to announce that the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has been chosen as a finalist for the Google.org Impact Challenge Canada. Google.org is granting $5 Million to Canadian nonprofits. Your vote helps decide where that money goes.

The project, Pocket Doc for Pneumonia could save the lives of some of the one million children under the age of five who die every year from pneumonia. It’s an mHealth initiative led by Dr. Mark Ansermino and Dr. Tex Kissoon.

“This is an unprecedented opportunity to change the way we diagnose and treat the leading killer of children worldwide,” says Dr. Ansermino. “This funding will enable us to deliver a smart integrated technology platform to help save children with pneumonia.”
