Tomorrow is World COPD Day! Over 300 million individuals live with COPD worldwide and we are joining with COPD advocates everywhere to honor the lives touched by this disease.

Get involved to promote awareness online!


  • Join U.S. News and World Report, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the COPD Foundation for the #Voices4COPD Twitter chat on November 18 at 2 p.m. EST.
  • Download the COPD Foundation's social media toolkit here and share infographics, messages, and your #MeAndCOPD story with your social networks.
  • Make Twitter #COUGH by joining the awareness Thunderclap. Sign up here.
  • Take the #DareToStair challenge. Show your support and generate awareness by taking the stairs - the more floors the better! After a couple of flights, you'll start to get a sense of what a person with COPD goes through every day. Post pictures using the hashtag #DareToStair on your social pages.
