What is COPD? Share Your COPD Knowledge

March 17th, 2014 | Author: Katelyn Turner

You know the stats:

  • COPD is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.
  • 24 million Americans have COPD
  • 12 million Americans remain undiagnosed
  • COPD takes 1 life every 4 minutes

We’ve taken the stats you know about COPD, and put them into an easy-to-understand video, intended to encourage individuals to get their lung health tested through our 5-question Risk Screener.

We ask that you share this video with your colleagues, friends, caregivers, spouses, family members, neighbors–anyone you think it would help. Education is key to the management and treatment of COPD.

To learn more, please visit the COPD Foundation website, or call the C.O.P.D. Information Line at (866) 316-COPD (2673).
