Every year, the American Lung Association helps thousands of people manage their lung disease, overcome their tobacco addiction and live healthier lives, thanks to help from our wide range of education and training resources.

Whether you interested in quitting smoking, facing lung disease or just have an interest in learning more about your lungs, we have the learning opportunity for you.

Asthma Basics is a free one-hour interactive online learning module ideal for individuals with asthma, parents of children with asthma, co-workers, friends and family who want to learn more about asthma.

Better Breathers Clubs are in-person support groups led by volunteers all across the country. They offer the opportunity to learn ways to better cope with lung disease while getting the support of others in similar situations.

Freedom From Smoking® (FFS) is a program for adults who are ready to quit smoking. Because most people know that smoking is dangerous to their health, the program focuses almost exclusively on how to quit, not why to quit.

LUNG FORCE Expos are a great opportunity to learn more about the latest trends, resources and research surrounding lung cancer, COPD, asthma and other lung diseases. The one-day event features experts from a variety of lung health-related fields presenting on current research and hot topics, an exhibitor showcase and a chance for patients, caregivers and the local medical community to connect.

Breathe Well, Live Well: The Guide to Managing Asthma at Home and Work is an empowering learning experience that shows you how to develop asthma self-management skills and build support teams at home and at work.
