COPD - Virtual Support Group

COPD - Virtual Support Group

COPD can introduce many challenges to your life. No matter how strong you are, you’ll probably find that you need to lean on other people for support, especially during these challenging times.

The Lung Association of Nova Scotia will be facilitating a NEW online support group for people who suffer from COPD. This group will be a private and secure forum for people to connect, ask questions, receive expert advice - all the while connecting with others who are living with COPD, just like you.

They can teach you tips to help you manage your condition. They’ll also give you a feeling of community. Just being around other people who have lived with the same condition can make you feel less alone.

If you are interested in joining our Virtual COPD support group, we are now accepting registrations.
