As the newest respiratory therapist and State Captain for West Virginia, I hope to accomplish increasing education and awareness of COPD.
As a COPD advocate I have participated in health fairs or community events to promote COPD awareness, I have written about COPD in a newspaper, magazine, or other publication, and I have I spoken to my family and friends about COPD.
As a State Captain I hope to connecting others in the COPD community to the resources available so they can live healthier, fuller lives, as well as raising awareness by participating in health fairs and community events. I would also like to work with state, local, and national officials to improve COPD policy, and participate and promote research opportunities to help find a cure.
My proudest COPD moment has been improving other's quality of life and happiness.
My inspiration to share is, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. We rise by lifting others”
