Living with COPD
With more than 3 million cases diagnosed each year (Mayo Clinic, 2014) and numerous commercials for new pharmaceuticals on TV and online, there is a clear need for honest, unbiased education on this disease of the lung. No, it is not a disease exclusively for smokers, and no, there is no known cure. However, there are effective treatments, and some are very new! While this is by no means a comprehensive course, it serves as an excellent introduction to anyone who is newly diagnosed or knows someone who is. The goal is to present a variety of topics relating to COPD and spark a conversation on the overall idea of lung health.
