COPD Crowdshaped The crowd is growing as the countdown to COPD Crowdshaped continues. We’ve got some great people attending! The group includes TED speakers, bestselling authors, innovation and technology gurus, artists, educators, CEOs and more. We’ll be challenging them to work together to see if they can come up with potential ideas and solutions that can make a difference to the lives of people affected by COPD.

Don’t forget that we would love your input; specifically in ‘testing’ the ideas that come out of Day one. You will need to be a member of COPD360social to get involved, so if you have not already joined our community, please create your profile today as we want to hear from you.

Keep an eye on the COPD Crowdshaped event page on June 2nd as we will be posting the ideas for you to feedback on. We’re looking forward to sharing these with you!

  • In less than 2 weeks a collection of industry experts from many fields will meet to hear individuals with COPD share their personal stories of challenges, frustrations, and areas where they dream of future solutions in person in San Francisco. On June 2nd the group of industry experts will brainstorm and develop some possible solutions- these possible innovative solution ideas will be posted right here on COPD360Social and our community will be able to share their input and comments.
    This community input will be shared realtime with the industry experts to let them know what individuals with COPD are saying and suggest, so they can modify as needed.
    It is a great opportunity to participate and have experts know what solutions could be viable and what could make a difference in the lives of our community. It is truly an honor for all involved.
    Mark your calendars for the night of June 2nd and morning of June 3rd to check in and participate.

  • You mention the evening of the 2nd and the morning of the 3rd....is this two separate sessions of commenting on the ideas, or two opportunities to comment on the same questions, or what?

    Just trying to understand. We are anxious to see what they come up with!

    • Hi Uncle Jim & Aunt Mary. The ideas will be posted on the evening of June 2nd so it's two opportunities to vote and provide comments on the same ideas.
