Promoting Health
Info
Lung Association of Nova Scotia ns.lung.ca

An excited gasp, a hearty laugh, a thoughtful sigh. What connects these important
expressions of emotion? Breath.

For most of us, breathing is so natural that we don’t even think about it. Too often, we take it for granted. For the 1 in 5 Nova Scotians who struggle with lung disease, it can be their only thought.

For over 100 years, the Lung Association of Nova Scotia has been working to improve the lung health of Nova Scotians through advocacy, research, patient services and education. This includes implementing comprehensive programs for children with asthma and adults struggling with obstructive sleep apnea. We provide support to patients with COPD, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, and people awaiting lung transplants. We have taken a leadership role in advocating to government on lung health issues and we provide programming and education around key lung health issues like radon and smoking cessation. Together, we are working to make Nova Scotia a healthier place to live and breathe.
