World COPD Day is or­ga­nized by the Global Ini­tia­tive for Chronic Ob­struc­tive Lung Dis­ease (GOLD) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with health care pro­fes­sion­als and COPD pa­tient groups through­out the world. Each year GOLD chooses a theme and co­or­di­nates prepa­ra­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion of World COPD Day ma­te­ri­als and re­sources with or­ga­ni­za­tions in each par­tic­i­pat­ing coun­try. This year’s theme is: Never too early, Never too late World COPD Day ac­tiv­i­ties are or­ga­nized in each coun­try by health care pro­fes­sion­als, ed­u­ca­tors, and mem­bers of the pub­lic who want to help re­duce the bur­den of COPD. COPD Canada’s aim in the com­ing year is to raise aware­ness of chronic ob­struc­tive pul­monary dis­ease (COPD) and im­prove early di­ag­no­sis of COPD through ex­panded spirom­e­try test­ing. The ear­lier COPD is de­tected and con­trolled, the bet­ter the re­sults of treat­ment, and the bet­ter your chance to pre­vent fur­ther lung dam­age. This Novem­ber our na­tional COPD aware­ness ef­forts are sup­ported in part by As­traZeneca Canada. We have an in­for­ma­tion booth at the up­com­ing ZOOMER Life­style Show, Oct. 27th - 28th in Toronto. Drop by our booth to learn more about COPD, spirom­e­try test­ing and gen­eral res­pi­ra­tory health.
