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.

Radon Basics is a free, one hour online learning program designed to help homeowners, housing professionals and healthcare providers understand more about radon, a radioactive cancer-causing gas commonly found indoors at dangerous levels.
