The Lung Health Program at the RFC works primarily to engage and empower people to take control of their own lung health. People desperately need help to develop a personalized action plan for proper lung health management and our program aims to support them every step of the way. Our volunteers work with each patient to develop a personalized action plan for quitting smoking or managing their asthma. Patients are given materials such as quit kits, nicotine replacements, asthma medications, education materials, and lists of other resources to support their plans. Volunteers promote the patient's involvement in developing their own strategies, recognizing that the patient is in charge of their own health status. We tailor strategies to fit each patient's needs and adjust accordingly based on the patient's progress.
