Health Sciences North Research Institute has received a boost to new advancements in clinical care.

A $400,000 grant from the Northern Ontario Academic Medicine Association will benefit treatments for Parkinson’s disease, cystic fibrosis, and many more illnesses.

Executive Director of NOAMA Mark Facca says they are excited to assist in the improvement of patient care across Northern Ontario.

The funding will allow for HSNRI and HSN staff to work together to address health care challenges in Northern Ontario.
