  • Patient Education and Support

    We provide education to patients with a variety of lung conditions, so they can better manage themselves and improve their quality of life.

    What We Do

    Patient education includes:

    • Helping patients to understand their condition
    • Teaching self-management skills and therapies, including the metered-dose inhalers, spacers, and peak-flow monitoring
    • Learning about triggers and environmental issues that may worsen a condition
    • Providing one-on-one educational sessions to anyone with a lung condition or disease

    To schedule an educational session or request information regarding our support groups, call (212) 523-5471.

    Community Outreach

    Our community outreach programs focus on risk reduction and early detection, especially among young adults. We work with colleges and universities to develop activities that will help young adults to maintain healthy lung function throughout their lives.

    We collaborate with organizations such as The New York Lung Association and The New York City Asthma Coalition, to support events such as World Asthma Day and the Great American Smokeout.

    We also conduct our outreach activities in Spanish.

    To learn about developing a program for an organization, call (212) 523-5471.
