To jump start the discussion, this session will open with a 3D Interactive that illustrates the pathology of COPD. Patients and caregivers are rarely presented with an opportunity to meet their entire healthcare provider team, leaving them in the dark about who is coordinating their care, who can help the best with what issue and in some cases, overwhelmed with navigating the system all together. The COPD Foundation’s Community Education Workshop Series and the Respiratory Health Association’s patient conferences have brought the experts to the patients across the country to help create educated, empowered and team oriented community partnerships. COPD patient advocates from across the country attending COPD8USA will join with the Chicago area patient community for this unique facilitated panel discussion.
Session Details: 1. Introductions: What I do to Help Your COPD (Panelists TBD) 2. Open Ask the Expert Panel
