The COPD9USA Conference was held in Chicago in June 2015, and was the third installment in a series of biennial conferences modeled after the successful COPD Conference series held in Europe for the past 18 years. Featuring a faculty of the nation’s top COPD experts, and attendees representing the entire health care provider team and patients, the conference focused on providing education and a collaborative exchange of information with the goal of improving the assessment, diagnosis and management of patients with COPD. Nearly 500 individuals attended the 2-day conference which was comprised of more than 20 different lectures, panel discussions and educational sessions. In addition, over 60 abstracts were presented at the conference. The authors present many of those here.
