Organizations launch yearlong campaign on lung health

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A coalition of organizations are launching a yearlong educational campaign about lung health issues in Kentucky. The Kentucky Medical Association, the Kentucky Foundation for Medical Care and the Anthem Foundation say in a joint statement that they aim to educate residents through the campaign called “Breathe Better Kentucky.” The initiative will include a three-part series on Kentucky Educational Television this winter called “Fighting to Breathe” that examines the causes of lung disease as well as treatments and prevention. There will also be targeted social media and public service announcements in areas that have higher lung health issues.
