For the future health of our children in lungs and in life


Smoking and vaping prevention for youth

The “Lungs are for Life!” program is the only smoking and vaping prevention program for elementary and middle school students developed by the Lung Association of Manitoba Inc. The program aims to give students information about nicotine use so they can make healthy and informed decisions about starting vaping or smoking. The program rolled out in the early fall of 2020 and saw immediate interest from Health Teachers across the province.


The ‘Lungs are for life!” program is a complete package for all educators, and targets students up to Grade 9. The curriculum is developed to easily integrate into the overall health curriculum, with no additional work for the teacher.
