Better Living With Your Lung Disease Patient Seminars

Perth Group Photo1In late May, Lung Foundation Australia held the annual Perth Better Living With Your Lung Disease Patient Seminar. The seminar proved to be extremely popular, with 130 people attending, more than double the number of attendees compared to last year.

The presenters delivered valuable information on cough, sputum and airway infection as well as outlining the benefits of physical activity and exercise in lung disease management. Whilst in Western Australia, Lung Foundation Australia took the opportunity to host a Better Living With Your Lung Disease Patient Seminar in Mandurah, where presenters provided valuable information about what to consider to ensure fitness to fly with a lung condition and discussed the differences between COPD and asthma.

The Gold Coast Better Living With Your Lung Disease Patient Seminar took place on 1 June and was well attended with more than 75 people coming along to hear presentations on the treatment of COPD and managing the activities of daily living. Later in the year, we will be holding our annual events in Brisbane north (Chermside), Sydney, Tasmania, Adelaide and Melbourne. We will also be adding a new Patient Seminar in the Camden region of New South Wales in mid-September.
