Patient seminars help people to live well with a lung disease
In our quest to continue to provide the latest tips on living well with a lung disease at our Patient Seminars, Lung Foundation Australia visited both Canberra and Perth in May. It was great to see a high number of attendees at each seminar, with Canberra reaching record registration of 100 people and Perth at room capacity with more than 120 people.
Canberra participants heard three presentations on living well with lung disease and the importance of being proactive in your care, the importance of good nutrition and weight maintenance for lung health and exacerbations and your lung disease. The Perth Seminar included presentations on bronchiectasis as well as lung disease and your throat, how to sooth your cough, improve your voice and ease your breathing.
Later this year, we will be visiting Brisbane North (Chermside), Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Geelong, Tasmania and Adelaide. For more information or to register, visit http://lungfoundation.typeandpixel.com.au/events-and-training/ or call 1800 654 301.
