Join Us In a Focus Group

Like 15 Likes

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 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.
  • I would like to encourage every patient , caregiver , medical professional that possibly can to participate in the focus groups.
    Together we can make a difference , with
    Continued research for all symptoms and
    comorbidities ,we all have. These studies will benefit so many .

  • I would love to join this group, it was a shocker to my family when we found out my dad had chronic bronchitis, i immediately started looking for things that would help him live a better life despite his condition, and i want to say that what has helped him a lot is purifying the air inside his house, he uses an air & room cleaning system named HYLA ( and he swears by it, my mom uses it to vacuum but it is supposed to clean the air while it vacuums so that's awesome. I know that they also have air-purifying plants inside their home, to get rid of pollutants. I hope this is a good tip for someone who is looking for natural or not-so-natural remedies.
