LEARN TO MANAGE YOUR LUNG DISEASE AT A BETTER BREATHERS CLUB.
Better Breathers Clubs are welcoming support groups for people with COPD or other lung diseases, who often feel alone and isolated. COPD is short for Chronic Obstructive pulmonary disease, and includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Together, members like you learn the skills that help manage their condition and improve their quality of life.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly for one to two hours to provide support, education and socialization to people with COPD or another chronic lung disease, their family members and / or caregivers. You will learn how to manage your condition, and take part in discussions and practice new skills. You will learn about resources and activities in your community that can help you manage you r d ay-to-day life. You will get out of the house and can become more active.

WHAT TOPICS ARE COVERED?
At Better Breathers Club we will cover important topics such as:
Lung2

  • How your lungs work
  • Understanding chronic lung disease
  • Talking to your healthcare provider
  • Tracking symptoms
  • Understanding medicines and treatment
  • Exercise programs
  • Emotional and social well-being

WHY SHOULD I JOIN A BETTER BREATHERS CLUB?
You are not alone! In the U.S., over 35 million adults have a chronic lung disease such as COPD, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis or lung cancer. Because these chronic conditions do not have a cure, people like you need to learn how to better manage living with their lung disease. Better Breathers Clubs help by providing patient-focused, community-based educational opportunities and support.

The American Lung Association works with organizations in your community to bring Better Breathers Clubs to people who want to better manage their lung disease. These organizations include hospitals, clinics, churches and community centers.
People trust both the American Lung Association and their own community organizations.
