Learning self-management skills is critical for people living with asthma and COPD to ensure a good quality of life and independence. Helping people quit smoking -- and teaching kids not to start -- will help reduce lung cancer. And knowing how to help a student with asthma can empower a teacher to save a life.
Respiratory Health Association provides educational programs for patients, caregivers and medical professionals to share up-to-date information about lung disease treatment options and self-care.
Current offerings include programming for schools, community organizations, health agencies, businesses and individuals for free or for a nominal fee. Lung health programs can be tailored to meet the needs or your audience, and facilitator trainings may also be available for your staff or volunteers.
