Kick Off CHEST 2018 at the Lung Health Experience

This year’s CHEST Annual Meeting will be the third year hosting the CHEST Foundation’s Lung Health Experience. Lung health experience events bring together local respiratory therapists and leading lung health experts to the public in a fun and inviting atmosphere. This event allows members of the community to connect with their local lung health champions so that they can begin the conversation about their lung health outside of the clinical setting, get their lungs screened by a respiratory therapist or pulmonologist, learn about different disease states, and gain empathy for those with conditions and diseases like asthma and COPD.
