The Community Initiatives

Each year, the generosity of the community is on display as it organizes, in its own way, various initiatives for the benefit of the CHUS Foundation. The loyalty of the Estrie community allows the Foundation to continue its mission and to give more to the Fleurimont Hospital, Sherbrooke’s Hôtel-Dieu Hospital, and the Centre de recherche du CHUS. Below are some examples of grassroots community initiatives.
