Better Breathing Conference

Better Breathing Conference

For the first time in 38 years, the Better Breathing Conference is open to everyone — healthcare providers AND patients and caregivers. It’s 100% virtual and 100% free.  Join us Jan. 18 to 22, 2021 to learn about lung care.

Helping Canadians breathe better is the sole reason we exist so each conference day is dedicated to a different area of lung health, including asthma, COPD, lung cancer, infectious disease and smoking/vaping cessation. During the five days of unparalleled programing, we’ll explore new approaches to respiratory health, unveil critical research updates and discuss relevant case studies. 

Whether you register for all sessions or just a few, you get free access to the networking opportunities we’re known for as one of the largest and longest-running respiratory events in Canada.
