Healthy Lungs Initiative Launched

Respiratory Health Association and Cook County Health and Hospital Systems launch Healthy Lungs Initiative, a multi-year $6 million program to improve lung health among Cook County residents by increasing quit smoking rates and improving self-management skills for people with asthma or COPD. In the ensuing eight years, RHA’s trained staff deliver smoking cessation assessments and asthma management tips to more than 124,000 residents of Cook County.
