Date:2/2/2011

s and corporate partners have supported DRIVE4COPD and helped spread the campaign to people across the country. In addition, DRIVE4COPD has collaborated with businesses nationwide to educate their employees and customers about COPD and the importance of getting screened for risk.

"We are thrilled that in just one year, we have already made a mark on reaching the millions of people who may be at risk for COPD," said Chris Barrett, Senior Vice President at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "With our campaign partners we've been able to reach a far greater audience than we ever could have alone, and we welcome other partners to join our mission."

This year, the campaign is collaborating with partners on exciting new endeavors to reach the public and continue its work to put the brakes on COPD. Through art, music, sports, live events and online activities, DRIVE4COPD is continuing to educate Americans with the message that early COPD screening and detection may help those with COPD work with their healthcare professionals to breathe easier.
