The American Lung Association's Better Breathers Club program has been connecting people living with lung disease to education, support, and each other in communities around the country for over 40 years.

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.

Coronavirus Alert: We encourage you to check with your Better Breathers Club facilitator prior to attending in-person meetings to learn of any location changes or cancellations.

Your safety is our top priority and everyone plays a role in prevention measures that help stop the spread of germs at Better Breathers Club meetings. The best prevention and self-care measures all of us can take are proper handwashing, avoiding close contact with people who are sick and staying home if you feel ill. We encourage you to contact your healthcare provider if you are experiencing new respiratory symptoms. Below are great resources available to learn about the virus symptoms, preventive measures and current confirmed cases.
