THE LIVING BETTER TOGETHER COPD CONFERENCE 2020

HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we made the decision to postpone the 2020 Living Better Together COPD Conference until November 2021. While disappointed to not see you in-person this year, we are working on providing the COPD community with alternatives in the meantime.

Living Better Together COPD Webinars

We hosted a series of webinars which address important topics and updates for people living with COPD and their caregivers.

Supplemental Oxygen at Home
Dr. Jerry Krishnan discusses what supplemental oxygen is, the benefits of using supplemental oxygen, and how to know when it’s time to start or stop using home oxygen.

Current COPD Medications
Managing symptoms and slowing down any damage to lungs is important since there is currently no cure for COPD. In this webinar, we discuss the different types of COPD medications and answer questions.

COPD and Common Comorbidities
Comorbidities, or having more than one condition at the same time, can occur in patients with mild, moderate, or severe COPD. In this webinar, Dr. Paul Reyfman discussed some of the most common conditions that can develop for people living with COPD and the impact they may have.
