Better Breathers Club COPD Support Group
The Better Breathers Club COPD Support Group members will meet at
2 p.m. Wednesday, April 24 at the Baptist East/Milestone Wellness Center, 750 Cypress Station Drive.
“The Weather Forecast: How it Can Affect Our Breathing” is the topic brought by WLKY-TV Chief Meteorologist Jay Cardosi.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder) is a lung disease caused by emphysema, chronic bronchitis and in some cases asthma, which creates difficulty breathing. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. COPD usually takes many years to develop before shortness of breath becomes enough of a problem that a person needs help breathing.
The Better Breathers Club is a support group that typically meets at 2 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month in Room 2 on the Wellness Center’s first floor. Meetings usually include a short educational session and time for sharing.
For more information about the group, including a brochure on upcoming sessions, call the Baptist Health Louisville Respiratory Care department at (502) 897-8134.
