We are proud to announce that for the THIRD year in a row, our COPD Foundation blog has made Healthline.com’s top COPD blogs list! Additionally, two of our other resources, the DRIVE4COPD and the COPD Digest websites, were also included along with other sites such as one from the National Health, Lung and Blood Institute and HealthCentral.
Our thanks to Healthline.com for the recognition.
COPD Foundation Blog
“The COPD Foundation has been a leader in patient advocacy for the last decade. They have even worked with the government to promote better detection and care. The COPD Foundation Blog discusses prominent health issues for current COPD patients and their families.
The blog, written by health experts, is informative yet personal. It covers issues such as the potential long-term consequences of the newly popular e-cigarette. And it offers opportunities to ask questions from the ‘COPD Coach.’”
“Drive 4 COPD is a public health initiative created by the COPD Foundation. Most people don’t know they have the disease, which makes early treatment challenging. Here you can take a short quiz to detect possible risk factors and symptoms.
While this blog strives to promote early COPD detection, it’s also a community for patients and their loved ones. COPD can make everyday activities difficult, which may become isolating. Having a community like Drive 4 COPD can help lift your spirits while connecting you with others battling similar challenges.”
“COPD Digest is another initiative from the COPD Foundation. It’s a free online magazine that’s also available in print format. Each quarterly issue features the latest COPD news and highlights patient challenges.
COPD Digest has a series called ‘Faces of COPD,’ which includes inspirational profiles of people overcoming seemingly unbeatable obstacles. There’s also a link for easy access to the Foundation’s main blog for daily updates on everything you need to know about COPD.”
