A virtual meeting of the All Party Group (APG) on Lung Health has been arranged to take place on Monday 19 October 2020 at 1pm using Zoom.

At some point in our lives, one in five of us will have a lung disease. This can vary from common conditions such as asthma, COPD and sleep apnoea to rarer conditions such as IPF and sarcoidosis.

This meeting will be focussing on self-management in people with lung conditions with a presentation from Jennifer Howard on pulmonary rehabilitation services across Northern Ireland, and a presentation from Pauline Miller on the Breathing Better project.

All Members are welcome to attend.

An invite will be emailed separately to every MLA providing instruction on how to join the remote/virtual meeting.
