All Americans aged 35 or older are encouraged to take a brief, five-question screener to see if they might be at risk for COPD. If the screener indicates risk, patients are encouraged to take the next step and speak with their healthcare professional or call the C.O.P.D. Information Line (1-866-316-2673) to discuss what their score may mean. Because COPD is a progressive disease that causes irreversible lung damage, early diagnosis and disease management are critical to helping patients breathe better in the future.
DRIVE4COPD is working with multiple partners from industry, the government and the not-for-profit sector to fulfill its mission to educate Americans with the message that early COPD screening and detection may help those with COPD to breathe easier.
