November is National COPD Awareness Month
As part of National COPD Awareness Month, the COPD Learn More Breathe Better® campaign encourages Breathe Better Network members and all those interested in raising COPD awareness to host events, lead discussions, and conduct other outreach to help people across the country take the first step toward improving the lives of those with COPD.
While an estimated 24 million Americans suffer from COPD, as many as half remain undiagnosed. But, with early diagnosis and treatment, people with COPD can improve their quality of life and begin to breathe a little easier.
Whether you are a large group or one individual, there is something we all can do to help those who may be affected by COPD. To assist you in your efforts, the COPD Learn More Breathe Better® campaign has developed the 2014 Outreach Toolkit.
