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 40 years.
As COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the U.S. and globally, we are continuing to recommend suspending in-person Better Breathers Club meetings to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus outbreak. With that in mind, we would like to remind you that we are not cancelling Better Breathers Club meetings, but instead putting temporary safeguards in place to protect your lung health.

In Person 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 offers a fun and stimulating combination of guest speakers, problem-solving discussions, and social activities. Led by trained facilitators, these in-person adult support groups give you the tools you need to stay active and healthy, living the best quality of life you can.
