CHEST addresses barriers to health care access

In 2020, CHEST embarked on a five-city Listening Tour across the US to understand the challenges that patients face in accessing health care, particularly in under-resourced communities. The message was clear: They experience a lack of access, equity, and trust. Driven to action, CHEST set out to address these barriers. Empathetic listening training emerged as the solution to build trust between patients and clinicians and improve the patient experience.

Lung health in women

Lung disease can impact genders differently. Our resources help women better understand how their symptoms and care may differ from what men experience.

Beating lung disease is our business. Helping you do it is our passion.

From Texas to Tanzania, our mission is to revolutionize lung health by awarding millions of dollars in grants for clinical research, community outreach events, and comprehensive patient-education tools.
