As higher temperatures and air quality advisories become more frequent, the Lung Association is reminding New Yorkers who have questions about their breathing or lung health that they can call the Lung HelpLine - the association's free telephone hotline regarding lung health issues. The Lung HelpLine is reachable by calling 1-800-LUNG-USA and choosing option No. 2. Questions can also be submitted online and the public can even chat directly with a specialist.

The Lung HelpLine connects callers with specially trained nurses and respiratory therapists who can accurately answer questions about a variety of lung health topics, including asthma and quitting smoking.
