Video Raises Awareness of COPD and the Need for Research Funding


A powerful new video has been released that raises awareness of the critical need for significantly increased COPD research funding. COPD is the third leading killer among chronic diseases, but it is ranked 165th in research funding. This is unacceptable!

The new video, “It’s COPD, Dammit!”, was produced by Foote, Cone and Belding (FCB) pro bono for the Stanford Medicine X Conference – CHANGE- Grand Challenge COPD which was held Sept 18-20th at the Stanford Academic Medical Conference.

The video can be viewed by clicking on this link: It’s COPD Dammit!

Please consider sharing the video on social network and on your organization’s website as part of COPD Awareness Month. It is time to get the word out that COPD deserves adequate research funding, not the pennies per patient that it currently receives.
