WORLD COPD DAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2014:
IT’S NOT TOO LATE!
World COPD Day will be held this year on November 19. The event is organized by GOLD (the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease, www.goldcopd.org), and represents a partnership between health care groups and respiratory educators to raise awareness about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The theme of this year’s World COPD Day is “It’s not too late.” This positive message emphasizes the meaningful actions people can take to improve their respiratory health, at any stage before or after a COPD diagnosis.
