April 2015



It’s been a busy month at the Lung Institute. Between organizing awareness events, spreading the word about stem cell therapy for lung disease and changing the lives of our patients, we are excited to be able to sit down and share the good news.

With spring officially in our midst, many people are heading outside to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Now is the season for picnics, trips to the beach and baseball games, but living with the effects of a chronic lung disease can make enjoying those springtime activities a challenge. Luckily, with alternative lung disease treatments like stem cell therapy, people can head back outside once again.

Helping you breathe easier,

The Lung Institute Team

New Events in New Places

Each week, the Lung Institute holds a stem cell seminar at one of our three clinics: Tampa, Nashville and Scottsdale. But now, the Lung Institute is hosting their first seminar in the City of Bridges—Pittsburgh, PA—on April 9th. As we consider expanding to new locations, we want to spread the word about stem cell therapy. At our seminars, we explain how stem cells are used to treat lung diseases and open up the floor to your questions about regenerative medicine. In just the next few days, we hope you’ll join us in Pittsburgh or Scottsdale to learn more about how stem cell therapy can help sufferers breathe easier.

Kicking the Habit in Downtown Tampa

On March 18th, thousands of individuals flooded the United States with anti-tobacco campaigns for the 20th annual Kick Butts Day. The Lung Institute joined the fight for a smoke-free life by kicking tobacco butts in Tampa. We raised public awareness by hosting a kick-off contest and a chance to play in the park. We encouraged participants to quit smoking for just one day by spreading the word about COPD and smoking cessation with quit kits in hand. We believe if you can quit for one day, you may be inspired to quit forever.

Discovering The Connection Between Lung Disease and Dementia

It’s 2015, and it feels like the healthcare dialogue has shifted greatly in the last decade. We live in a society that constantly uses buzzwords like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Movies such as Still Alice and Away From Her have brought these debilitating conditions into the limelight. Just recently at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference, a global action called for increased investment in promising research efforts for treating dementia. As a result of the increased action directed at understanding dementia, recent studies point to a link between chronic lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the development of dementia.
