Respiratory Rally

rally-ca

Respiratory Rallies are a one-day, inspirational and educational event for adults living with advanced lung disease, their loved ones and caregivers. 

COPD (short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and end-stage asthma. These diseases make it hard to breathe and can become progressively worse over time. Many living with COPD reduce their physical activity and social interactions due to their disease, often leading to feelings of isolation and even depression.

Respiratory Rallies includes presentations by prominent pulmonologists, physicians and health educators in your community that address a wide range of topics, including how to recognize and manage COPD symptoms and flare-ups, exercise and nutrition, oxygen therapy, support resources and more. Attendees will hear inspirational messages from others who are living health, active lives with COPD, and can speak one-one-one with exhibitors to learn more about COPD management and community resources. 

The fun-filled day also offers an opportunity to socialize with others living with lung disease in a setting that meets their physical and mobility needs.
