Our Programs & Initiatives

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.

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 the incidence of lung cancer. Knowing how to help a student who has asthma can empower a teacher to save a life.

Current offerings include programming for schools, community organizations, health agencies, businesses, and individuals which can be tailored to meet the needs of your audience. Facilitator trainings may also be available for your staff or volunteers.
