Community Education: COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, also known as COPD, refers to a group of conditions that obstruct air flow and cause trouble breathing.  COPD includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis and in some cases, asthma.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 15.7 million Americans report a diagnosis of COPD.  Additionally, more than 50 percent of people with poor lung function also may have undiagnosed COPD.  Early detection and treatment often can alter the course and progression of this potentially debilitating disease.
 
Join Registered Respiratory Therapist Kenneth Justice, R.R.T., RRT-NPS-ACCS, AE-C, for an informative discussion on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of COPD on Tuesday, April 23, at 6:00 p.m., in the Licking Memorial Hospital First Floor Conference Rooms.  A meal will be provided for all participants.  The program is free; however, registration is required.  To register, please call (220) 564-1560.
