Living Well With Lung Disease

LungNSPEI and iMaster Health have partnered to launch the Living Well with Lung Disease Pilot Program. This will provide Nova Scotians and Islanders living with lung disease with free 1-year subscription to the iMaster Health Virtual Pulmonary Rehabilitation Premium Platform.

The program will look to improve participants’ quality of life by providing access to an extensive suite of resources to improve individuals’ ability and confidence to self-manage their lung disease while increasing their physical mobility through bi-weekly virtual group exercise classes.
