From asthma education to smoking cessation, The Lung Association Newfoundland and Labrador offers a number of support programs to the people of this province.
West Coast Asthma Support Group
From Mall displays to Asthma Day Camps, the Corner Brook Asthma Support Group, in partnership with The Lung Association, has been providing asthma education for people residing in the Corner Brook and the greater West Coast area since 1999.
This group of volunteers, with help from various community organizations and health professionals, have been very active in providing families, individuals, day care workers, teachers and the general public with up-to-date information and education for living with asthma.
