November 09, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 9, 2015 –The COPD Foundation in partnership with Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Sunovion) today announced the launch of a new video series, Reel COPD, to share the first-hand stories of patients and their caregivers as they cope with COPD. The first three videos in the series are now live on COPDTogether.com, and highlight the existing tools and resources available to patients and caregivers.

The COPD Foundation and Sunovion initiated COPD Together in 2013 to empower and educate caregivers about managing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The three new videos collectively share the real-life insights of more than a dozen patients and caregivers, providing inspiration and guidance for others faced with managing the challenges of COPD.

“As November is both National Family Caregiver and COPD Awareness Month, we feel it is an opportune time to focus on the instrumental role that COPD caregivers play,” said John W. Walsh, President and co-founder of the COPD Foundation. “We will continue to build partnerships and implement campaigns that make an impact, encourage caregivers and patients to share their personal stories, and overcome day-to-day challenges.”
