World Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Day is organized by the 'Global initiative for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease' (GOLD) to improve awareness and care of COPD around the world.
There is never a more important time to focus on lung health! We take our lungs for granted. They keep us alive, that is why it is important to prioritize your lung health. Keeping your lungs healthy can include avoiding cigarettes and air pollution. Regular physical activity or pulmonary rehab. Keeping medical appointments, and taking medications correctly can also help keep your lungs healthy.
