November is World COPD AWARENESS Month
Coming soon: Nov. 18th BREATHE LA Webcast Seminar for World COPD Day
BREATHE LA continues to provide the latest medical education about COPD treatment, research, best practices in management, and emerging medical issues.
Welcome to our growing COPD Network!
Our Network is designed to inform medical and allied health professionals about local and regional COPD trends and events, including innovative research funded by BREATHE LA or another institution when the material is most compelling.
BREATHE LA shares special recognition to Los Angeles County Medical Association members. Our ad will be in the November 2009 Southern California Physicians magazine. See our ads: COPD Essentials for Health Professionals and Skinny Has Its Price: COPD.
BREATHE LA's COPD Network connects you to National Heart Lung and Blood Institute "Learn More, Breathe Better" materials, our partner in educating and engaging the general public, and medical professionals in COPD education and self-management initiatives. In 2009, BREATHE LA is providing a special focus to assist women over 40.
