“Inspirations: Living Well with COPD” is a support group to inspire hope and improve the quality of life for patients, families and caregivers living with chronic lung disease. A physical therapist teaches abdominal strengthening to maximize a patient’s ability to breathe. Harmonica therapy techniques are practiced as a fun and effective way to strengthen muscles around the lungs. All participants receive a free harmonica. The group meets monthly.
The group will meet from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at OSF HealthCare St. James Pontiac, first-floor conference room. No registration is required. For more information, call 815-842-4583.
