Better Breathers Clubs

ALA-Better-Breathers-Wordmark

Better Breathers Clubs offer the opportunity to learn ways to better cope with COPD while getting the support of others who share in your struggles. These support groups give you the tools you need to live the best quality of life you can. Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly and feature educational presentations on a wide range of relevant topics. If you feel alone and isolated, these support groups can help. It feels good to talk with others who understand, which has a positive impact on your health.
