Better Breathers Club

Connect to education, support and each other through in-person and virtual support groups.

Why Join a Better Breathers Club?

The American Lung Association's Better Breathers Club program has connected people living with lung disease to education, support, and each other in communities around the country for over 50 years.

In Person or Virtual Meetings

Better Breathers Club members learn better ways to cope with lung conditions such as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, and asthma while getting the support of others in similar situations. Better Breathers Club meetings offer a fun and stimulating combination of guest speakers, problem-solving discussions, and social activities. Led by trained facilitators, these in-person or virtual adult support groups give you the tools you need to stay active and healthy, living the best quality of life you can.
