Better Breathers Clubs offer the opportunity to learn ways to better cope with chronic lung diseases while getting the support of others who share similar struggles. These support groups provide the tools needed to live the best quality of life.

Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly and feature educational presentations on a wide range of relevant topics, including:

  • How chronic lung disease affects the lungs
  • Breathing techniques
  • Exercise
  • Talking with your healthcare provider
  • Medications and other treatment options
  • Medical tests
  • Supplemental oxygen
  • Home healthcare
  • Nutrition
  • Air pollution

The Facilitator Training consists of four interactive modules. After completing this course, learners will be equipped with the necessary tools to plan, conduct, and evaluate a Better Breathers Club.
