Webinar: Current COPD Medications
Since there is not currently a cure for COPD, treatment focuses on managing symptoms and slowing down further lung damage. Medications play a large part in the successful management of COPD. Join Respiratory Health Association (RHA) for the next webinar in their Living Better Together COPD Education Series to learn more about the different types of COPD medications.
The event will be moderated by Joel Africk, President & CEO of RHA, and will feature Lori Wilken, PharmD, BCACP, C-TTS, AE-C. Dr. Wilken is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice at the UIC College of Pharmacy. She is the director of the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System tobacco treatment center and the clinical pharmacist in the adult pulmonary outpatient clinics. Her areas of interest include the role of clinical pharmacists in COPD, asthma, and tobacco dependence. She has authored several articles and book chapters on smoking cessation, asthma, and COPD.
