JSU Nursing: "Breathe Easier" Big Idea

JSU Nursing awarded the CFNA Big Idea Grant 2019 for the "Breathe Easier" campaign. Breathe Easier is a collaborative effort between the JSU Nursing program and Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center, to reduce the impact of COPD on community residents whose lives are significantly affected by chronic, disabling lung disease. This innovative program combines in-person remote educational and exercise sessions. Remote sessions use live-streaming technology in the comfort of the client’s home.
