Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Education Program

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death in the United States, claiming more than 120,000 American lives each year. More than 12 million have been diagnosed, but another 12 million are likely to have COPD and don’t know it yet. COPD is a progressive disease that requires a lifetime of disease management. Many people with COPD avoid activities they used to enjoy because they become short of breath so easily. When COPD becomes severe, it can get in the way of doing even the most basic task, such as light housework, taking a walk, bathing or getting dressed.

Learn More and Breath Better with Support

We invite anyone living with COPD, their families, and/or caregivers to our monthly 'Oxygen-Air-Ians' COPD Support Group. This group strives to improve daily self-management of COPD, by offering educational materials and relevant lectures specific to those living with COPD. Group participation is encouraged and discussions occur after each meeting to investigate solutions to everyday health and social barriers that can be problematic for all COPD patients and caregivers.
