Join the American Lung Association in a one-hour webinar to learn the latest in diagnosing and managing COPD to share with your BBC members. You will have an opportunity to hear from an expert in COPD, engage with other BBC Facilitators and ask questions.

This is the first webinar of a four-part webinar series planned for the 2017 calendar year. During these webinars, we hope to engage with BBC Certified Facilitators nationwide and improve patient support and patient health outcomes.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the latest research in diagnosing and managing COPD, and
  • Describe current therapies to help BBC members improve their quality of life, including nebulizers, oxygen, pulmonary rehab and medication therapy.


During this webinar, we will hear from Dr. Bob Wise, a pulmonary physician and Professor of Medicine at the John Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

Dr. Wise is a founding member of the American Lung Association Airway Clinical Research Centers and directs the ACRC Data Coordinating Center.
