About Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
More than 12 million Americans have COPD and it is the third leading chronic disease cause of death in the US. In California alone 1.1 million people have been diagnosed with COPD. To address this dearth of research on COPD, BREATHE LA and the Emphysema Foundation of America (EFA) are stepping in to provide educational workshops to patients diagnosed with COPD and professional education to those on the front lines of treating this prevalent disease.
A Note From The Nimoy Family
The Nimoy family has requested that all gifts from this community event support BREATHE LA and EFA’s efforts in COPD education, advocacy, and technology.
