Better Breathers Club to discuss nutrition, lung disease

“Nutrition and Lung Disease” will be the topic when the University of Louisville Better Breathers Club next meets from 2-4 p.m., Thursday, July 9. The free support group is open to the public and meets in room 120 of the UofL Physicians Outpatient Center, 401 E. Chestnut St.

Metered parking is available on East Chestnut and parking for a fee is available in the Chestnut Street Garage at 414 E. Chestnut Street, directly across the street from the outpatient center.

Participants will discuss the role diet plays in management of lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, chronic bronchitis and others. UofL staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide information.

Better Breathers Clubs are an initiative of the American Lung Association, giving people with lung disease, their caregivers and loved ones support, education and information. At UofL, the Better Breathers Club is sponsored by the American Lung Association, UofL Physicians-Pulmonology and the UofL School of Medicine.
