Pacific Coast Lung Health Conference

Celebrating a Century of Inspiration, Innovation, and Invention
Co-Sponsored By:

Breathe SoCal is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization promoting clean air and healthy lungs through research, education, advocacy, and technology. For over115 years, Breathe SoCal programs and services have addressed Southern California’s serious air quality and lung‐related public health challenges. Their work supporting clean air, healthy lungs, and smoke‐free environments are among the many ways they protect the breath of life in California.

The Trudeau Society is a membership organization providing doctors and allied health professionals with networking opportunities, special events and continuing education on lung health. Membership provides collaboration between lung health professionals and enables expanded education on research-driven best practices, new treatments, therapies, and technologies, and visibility among leading academic medical institutions.

In conjunction with Breathe Southern California, the Emphysema Foundation of America (EFA) sponsors the annual COPD Conference and supports adult lung health programs that serve those suffering from COPD and other chronic lung diseases. The Emphysema Foundation of America (EFA) is dedicated to fighting for every breath of those suffering from emphysema and COPD. Its mission is to increase awareness of emphysema and COPD, and to conduct and support activities and research to prevent and treat those diseases.
