Breathing Together: Vulcan Honours Leonard Nimoy’s Legacy

Canadian health charity created a resource for education and prevention of respiratory disease.

Online PR News – 11-March-2022 – Vulcan, Alberta – Health experts estimate that tens of thousands of Canadians live with weakened lung capacity and lingering health effects from COVID-19. Today, one in five Canadians have a respiratory illness. Everyone deserves the best information and resources when it comes to health.

Leonard Nimoy, who played the iconic Spock on Star Trek, fought to raise awareness for COPD and lung-disease prior to his passing in 2015; a legacy that has never been more important, and the “Live Long and Prosper™” mantra will forever live on in his memory. The Remembering Leonard Nimoy Wellness Academy - an online platform and community offering education and aid around the world, launched alongside a state-of-the-art facility in Vulcan, Alberta. The Academy was built by the Vulcan County Health & Wellness Foundation, a registered Canadian charity working in partnership with Alberta Health Services.

Beyond upholding Leonard Nimoy’s legacy and continuing his quest to bring awareness to respiratory disease and prevention, the brand-new website will also be home to what they’ve called the “Logic Library”. The Logic Library offers rich-media resources, education, prevention plans, and community tools to help anyone “Live Long and Prosper™”.

“Vulcan is a small township in Alberta with a huge heart. Vulcan, I can't imagine a better place in the universe for a Wellness Academy dedicated to my father,” says Julie Nimoy.

“The Remembering Leonard Nimoy Wellness Academy will be a global Digital Community Health Hub for anyone seeking information or help with respiratory disease and prevention. This Virtual health platform will bring healing information to individuals around the world, and we couldn't be more excited to be doing it in partnership with the Nimoy Family."

The Vulcan County Health & Wellness Foundation is actively seeking donations and sponsorships to The Remembering Leonard Nimoy Wellness Academy to support preventative health programming and wellness plans for the digital platform.
