Throughout 2010, the U.S. COPD Coalition participated in the Year of the Lung Campaign designed to raise awareness about lung disease globally. As part of the campaign, we asked you to tell your elected officials to pass a resolution officially recognizing the goals of the Year of the Lung. COPD advocates, along with our health care provider partners, succeeded and before the 111th Congress ended in December, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1122.
This is the second time in recent history that Congress has passed a resolution dealing with lung disease.
