Welcome to ProResp
The Lung Association's Breathing as One TRAILBLAZER AWARD recognizes an individual's profound contributions, both nationally and internationally, to lung health. The late Dr. Mitchell Baran, former President and Chief Executive Officer of Trudell Medical Group of Companies which includes ProResp Inc., is the inaugural recipient. Dr. Baran built one of Canada's most successful medical device companies and the first community respiratory services company in Ontario to have registered respiratory therapists pivotal to the patients’ care, ProResp Inc. His legacy continues to help millions of people breathe easier. The award is a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life's work to improve the health and well-being of individuals who struggle to breathe.
