Almost 1 in 3 Australians has a lung disease, yet many people tend to put the symptoms down to getting older or being unfit. Getting an early diagnosis is critical to improving outcomes and saving lives.
Don’t guess, know the symptoms. Encourage your friends and family to take 2 minutes to check their lung health, here.
Lung Health Awareness Month is a Lung Foundation Australia national campaign held in May which aims to raise awareness about the importance of lung health and how to recognise and act upon the symptoms of lung disease. We’re all are used to thinking about our heart and skin health but our lungs are equally important. It’s time we made our lung health a priority as well because if you can’t breathe, nothing else matters.
