Work-Related COPD- Protecting your Lung Health While on the Job Webinar

Did you know that workplace exposures to dust, fumes, vapors or chemicals may put you at risk of developing COPD?

If you are living with COPD or are concerned about your lung health on the job, join us for a patient-focused webinar.

During this webinar, you will hear from our partners at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) cover an overview of COPD, workplaces that may put you at a higher risk of developing COPD and ways to prevent and reduce lung-related exposures in the workplace. You will also hear from Mary C., a patient living with COPD, who was exposed to workplace-related risk factors.
