Lung Association & Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center Bring Better Breathers Clubs To Life Online

Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center’s Webinars To Go Live on January 22nd

(January 9, 2014)

The American Lung Association of the Northeast is pleased to announce that the Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center in Manhattan will host first-of-its-kind live webinars that bring the experience of a Better Breathers Club meeting to those who are homebound or cannot attend the in-person meetings.  The Ultimate Pulmonary Wellness Lecture Series is the brainchild of the Center’s Program Director, Dr. Noah Greenspan DPT, CCS, EMT-B, who is a board-certified Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Clinical Specialist and a member of the American Lung Association in New York’s Leadership Board. 

“Better Breathers Clubs are meetings where people with COPD and other lung diseases can come to not only learn more about how to manage their disease but offer and receive support from others who are experiencing similar challenges,” said Dr. Greenspan.  “These webinars will finally allow people who are unable to attend the in-person meetings to log in, watch a session and participate in the lecture from the comfort of their own homes.”

Upcoming Better Breathers Club Meetings that will be offered both on site at the Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center and available as live online webinars are as follows:
Wednesday, January 22: Ultimate Pulmonary Wellness:  Your Best 2014 and Beyond
Wednesday, February 26: Breathe Deep!  Your Absolute Best Breathing Techniques Ever!
Wednesday, March 19: Make it Work!  Maximizing Your Pulmonary Medications Now!
Wednesday, April 23: Move It!  Move It!  Exercise and Pulmonary Disease!

All of these events will take place at 6 p.m. at the Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center, located at 22 West 38th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues) on the 2nd floor.  The Pulmonary Wellness Center is located directly across the street from the American Lung Association’s office, which is at 21 West 38th Street. Those who want to participate online may register for the January 22 webinar via the WEBINAR link on the Center’s website, www.PulmonaryWellness.com. It is suggested that those participating live and online log in at 5:45 p.m. 

Those with questions about the Better Breathers Club at the Center or the online lecture series should contact the Pulmonary Wellness Center directly at 212.921.0214 or via email at info@pulmonarywellness.com

“When you suffer from a chronic disease, it can be extremely isolating; physically, emotionally and in some cases, geographically,” said Dr. Greenspan.  “Now, we will be able to connect with those people that have previously been out of reach, so that they too can receive the support they need to achieve their absolute best quality of life possible.”

The American Lung Association’s Better Breathers Clubs are offered throughout the United States. Educational presentations are offered on a wide range of relevant topics.   There is no charge to join a club. Each club has a facilitator that runs the meeting but guests are often invited to share information on health topics that are of special interest to those suffering from chronic lung disease.   To learn more about the Lung Association’s Better Breathers Clubs offered throughout the Northeast, visit LungNE.org  "Pulmonary Wellness" is a Registered Trademark of Pulmonary Wellness Rehabilitation PTPC.  All Rights Reserved.
