It was great year for COPD advocacy! 23 states declared November as COPD Awareness Month and 12 state legislatures passed legislation improving COPD awareness, diagnosis, and treatment. Thank you to all of our COPD advocates for all the hard work you do; without your letters, calls, and visits to your elected officials we would not have made such great strides in COPD public policy. Thank you to all of the state coalitions, USCC member organizations, and patient groups that helped introduce and pass these pieces of legislation.
