Today is World COPD Day - Take Action!

Like 14 Likes

November 16, 2016 marks World COPD Day - a time for all of the stakeholders in our community to work together to educate the world about this silent epidemic. Let’s raise our voices for the 300 million individuals living with COPD worldwide. So few understand what it is like living with COPD- here is our chance to educate and inspire.

How can we take action?

  • Take the Global Disparities Survey - a short questionnaire that will help us paint a better picture of our global community.

  • Join the COPD community on Twitter for the #COPDChat from 3-4p ET. Hosts from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, Centers for Disease Control, American Lung Association, and American Association for Respiratory Therapists will be answering questions and prompting discussion around the topic of COPD. Use hashtag #COPDChat to join the conversation.
  • Help shape one of our upcoming studies by participating in a focus group. All participants will be compensated for their time. Click here to learn more.
  • Watch and share the “COPD360: Pathways to a Cure” video that describes how we are forming a community and working together to find a cure for COPD.
  • Watch and share a pre-recorded webinar hosted by the COPD Foundation, Caregiver Action Network, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute around the importance of COPD caregivers in our community.
