ABSTRACT:
While some things get more difficult with age, breathing should not. Yet 1 in 5 Canadians has lung disease. Shortness of breath is the main symptom of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) - an umbrella term for progressive lung diseases such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and asthma.
Please join us for light refreshments and a discussion about the latest research to improve diagnosing and treating people with COPD.
