Lung Health & Breathing Expo

Our research indicates that more awareness around lung disease, including risk factors and symptoms as a gap that needs to be filled. As lung disease continues to exact an enormous human toll, we all have a key role to play in our collective lung health. We need to promote healthy breathing. We need to support and advocate for those living with lung disease. And we need to turn knowledge into action to find cures for lung diseases.

Now, more than ever, we need to work together to ensure that future generations will be better equipped to manage their lung health. We need to collaborate raise the profile of lung disease and to make Canada a better place for all of us who share the air. That is why the Lung Health Foundation is proud to introduce The Lung Health & Breathing Expo, a new and innovative, direct-to-consumer event that has been created to showcase the latest lung health information and resources and connecting companies that believe breathing is everybody’s business directly with those most interested in taking control of their breathing.

This full day event will engage attendees interested in learning more about what they can do to protect and improve their lung health. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact and learn about key issues impacting our lungs and how they can take control of their lung health.

Visitor Experience

From the moment attendees enter the expo, they have the opportunity to learn the ways in which lung health impacts our life. From resources to help protect the young lungs of our children to planning for our later-in-life lung concerns, protecting our breath is important at any age. The Lung Health & Breathing Expo has been designed to maximize the impact each attendee has while visiting the different zones.

Take a Breather Zone

An area dedicated to help our guests slow down and remember to think about the breaths they take each day. We often forget about the 22,000 breaths we take each day…until we have trouble taking them. This area will provide attendees with tools and exercises they can use to remember to breathe.

  • Breathing Friendly Exercises
  • Breathing Techniques at work
  • Breathing Friendly Plants
 

Seniors Zone

Almost 6 million Canadians are older adults, meaning almost 6 million Canadians are part of a vulnerable population that needs to think more carefully about the 22,000 breaths they take each day. This zone is dedicated to giving this population more information on choices they have about their lung health.

  • Immunization – adult immunization cards
  • Pneumonia shot clinic
  • Fitness for Breath Class
  • Will Campaign

Kid-Friendly Breathing

  • Lung and Learn Stations – providing activities for children to learn about how the lungs work and how to keep them healthy

The Air You Breathe
