The COPD Foundation is hosting a series of focus groups by phone, online, and in person to discuss chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obstructive sleep apnea and overlap syndrome. We would like to receive feedback from individuals on their therapy and disease management; more specifically, the goal of the focus groups is to outline common treatment barriers. By participating in a focus group you can help us shape future research and potentially influence future treatment options! There will be 4-10 people in each focus group.

Phone and online focus group will last approximately one hour. In person focus groups will last up to two hours. All participants will be compensated for their time.

If you or a family member or friend is living with obstructive pulmonary disease, obstructive sleep apnea or overlap syndrome please call a member of the COPD Foundation team at (866-731-2673 Ext. 210) or email at ebenkert@copdfoundation.org to learn more and sign up for one of the focus groups that will take place later this year!

  • This will be such a valuable study for thousands of individuals who have many questions about the overlap syndrome and how we can better understand what the interventions are that can support these individual.
    I would encourage those who can to participate and be part of finding patient powered solutions.
