COPD Research: A Call to Action

Bookmark and Share

April 8, 2013

The COPD Foundation is leading the charge to increase research funding for COPD and is asking AARC members to join in the fight by contacting their members of Congress to let them know COPD is an urgent public health concern that needs to be aggressively addressed.

You can use the Action Alert on the COPD Foundation website to quickly and easily email your members of Congress. Be sure to edit the standard copy in the letter to reflect that you are a respiratory therapist advocating on behalf of your patients.

By supporting COPD patients in their request for additional research funding, we can help send a strong message to Congress that respiratory care is a profession that cares about its patients and is willing to go the extra mile to help find new and better treatments for their disease.
