Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, is a kind of illness characterized by progressively inadequate lung airflow. COPD is divided into two entities: emphysema and chronic bronchitis. According to COPD.com, in the USA 15 million people have been diagnosed with COPD and another 12 million undiagnosed. The World Health Organization estimated that about 3 million deaths, across the globe, were caused by the disease in 2015 (that is, 5% of all deaths globally in that year)! It is important to note that many cases of COPD are preventable(cessation of cigarette smoking). However, COPD is not curable. On Wednesday, January 4, 2017, from 8-9am PST Dr. J.K. Gude will speak on COPD. Please review the time in your international location for this ONLINE presentation.
