Moncton, Thursday, June 27, 2019 – The members of the organizing committee for the 18th Scotiabank - BMW Moncton Golf Classic proudly presented a cheque for $82,000 to the CHU Dumont Foundation. The annual tournament took place yesterday at the Fox Creek Golf Course in Dieppe.

The funds raised this year will allow the purchase of a portable ultrasound device and an APS PRO system to perform bronchial provocation tests in the pulmonary function laboratory. 

"The bronchial provocation test is a medical examination used in the diagnosis of asthma and certain forms of allergies. It is carried out as part of respiratory functional explorations," says pulmonologist Dr. Matthieu Gaudet. “The test is designed to determine if a patient suffers from bronchial hyperreactivity. It meets the standards of the European Respiratory Society and the American Thoracic Society published in 2017.”
