Join the Breathe Better Network

Breathe Better NetworkSince 2007, the NHLBI has been working with COPD coalitions and task forces in several states to integrate the COPD Learn More Breathe Better® program with their outreach efforts. In that time the number of partnering organizations has increased and the program now supports a variety of partners at various stages of development. In March 2009 the NHLBI held a meeting of organizations active in COPD education, to encourage information sharing, gain insight and identify needs for expansion of the COPD Learn More Breathe Better® program.
