Better Breathers Club

Better Breathers Clubs offer the opportunity to learn ways to better cope with COPD while getting the support of others who share in your struggles. These support groups give you the tools you need to live the best quality of life you can.

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

  • How COPD affects the lungs
  • Breathing techniques
  • Exercise
  • Talking with your physician
  • Medications and other treatment options
  • Medical tests
  • Supplemental oxygen
  • Home healthcare
  • Lung transplants
  • Air pollution

If you feel alone and isolated, these support groups can help. It feels good to talk with others who understand, which has a positive impact on your health.

If you are interested in joining an online support community in addition to an in-person Better Breathers Club, visit our Living with COPD Community on Inspire.
