Advisory group participants are engaged in the Lung Association's research programs, advocacy initiatives and educational efforts. The patient advisors work closely with our Airways Clinical Research Centers network to help guide studies based on patient priorities, provide input into research design, methodologies and outcomes.

Research that is patient focused means making sure that outcomes from a study work for patients. After participating in a COPD clinical trial, Mike became a member of the American Lung Association’s Patient Advisory Group to help researchers like Dr. Sumino develop patient-focused studies.
