    • Learning about triggers and environmental issues that may worsen a condition
    • Providing one-on-one educational sessions to anyone with a lung condition or disease

    Mount Sinai West’s community outreach programs focus on risk reduction and early detection, especially among young adults. We work with colleges and universities to develop activities that can help young adults maintain healthy lung function throughout their lives.
