Sponsored by the American Lung Association and Novato Community Hospital, Better Breathers Club meetings provide education and support to those with chronic lung disease such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis. Meetings are free and open to anyone interested in learning more about chronic lung disease or breathing disorders. Caregivers are also welcome.
More than 24 million Americans are estimated to have COPD, and yet only half have been diagnosed. For more information about chronic lung disease, please call the American Lung Association at 1-800-LUNG-USA. You can also speak to a respiratory therapist through the free Lung HelpLine. For
more information about COPD and resources to help you, visit the lung association website at www.lung.org.
