October 30, 2013

The National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) in partnership with the COPD Foundation announced that it is making available $120,000 in grant funds to four member coalitions to work with employers on employee screening, education and benefits design efforts.

The grants will support coalition efforts to improve COPD care by engaging employers in claims analysis, employee screening and education efforts, and benefit design. Coalition strategies will focus on interventions included in the COPD Foundation Employer Toolkit. The stipends will support coalitions serving in an advisory group focused on engagement of employers in improving COPD-related care for their covered populations.
