LUNG CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
Know the Facts When It Comes to Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S., yet receives significantly less funding than other cancers. This month we want to talk about ways to keep yourself healthy, from knowing signs & symptoms to getting screenings if you are a good candidate.

AN UPDATE ON COPD
YOUR COPD QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Dr. Khalilah Gates, a lung specialist from Northwestern University, shared an update on COPD and the impacts of COVID-19. You can learn about the best ways to stay healthy, especially with the holidays coning up, and hear Dr. Gates answer people’s questions about COPD!

 

COPD CAREGIVERS STUDY
ARE YOU CARING FOR SOMEONE LIVING WITH COPD?

We are looking for participants to use and evaluate our COPD Caregiver’s Toolkit, which is designed to ease the burden of caregiving. As part of this year-long Caring for COPD Caregivers study, you will receive a free toolkit to use and provide feedback on every few months.
