At least 100,000 Americans live with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1), but fewer than 10% have been diagnosed. Alpha-1 is the most common known genetic risk factor for emphysema. Are you 1? That is the question the Alpha-1 Foundation is asking for COPD/Alpha-1 Awareness Month.
As part of the “I am 1. Are you?” awareness campaign, the Alpha-1 Foundation wants you to record a video of yourself or a loved one and post it on Facebook and/or other social media sites. Make sure to use the hashtag #AreYou1 and include a link to alpha-1foundation.org/awareness.
