Two National Organizations Join DRIVE4COPD Movement to Raise Awareness of Nation's Fourth Leading Cause of Death
Date:3/15/2011

>"Our mission is very in line with that of DRIVE4COPD," said Brian Carlin, MD, FCCP, Chair, COPD Alliance. "We are all dedicated to improving the health of patients by providing knowledge and resources to healthcare professionals who are on the front lines diagnosing COPD."

COPD, also known as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or both, is a serious lung disease that robs people of their ability to breathe. It's the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and kills more people each year than breast cancer and diabetes combined. Currently, half of the estimated 24 million Americans who may have COPD remain undiagnosed.

DRIVE4COPD encourages all Americans aged 35 or older to log onto DRIVE4COPD.COM to take a brief, five-question screener to see if they might be at risk for COPD. If the screener indicates risk, patients should speak to their healthcare professional. Because COPD is a progressive disease that causes irreversible lung damage, early diagnosis and disease management are critical to helping patients breathe better in the future.  

About DRIVE4COPD

Launched in February 2010, DRIVE4COPD is a landmark public health movement embraced by leading health, business, entertainment and sports organizations that aim to drive fundamental change in COPD awareness in this country. The unified efforts of the DRIVE4COPD network of organizations help people identify symptoms of COPD, take action to see if they may be at risk for the disease, and talk to their healthcare provider. The campaign is led by founding sponsor Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., along with a powerful coalition of partnering organizations including the American Association for Respiratory Care, Country Music Association, COPD Alliance, COPD Foundation, NASCAR® and the U.S. COPD Coalition.

Joining this movement are DRIVE4COPD Celebrity Ambassadors* including Emmy-nominated actor Jim Belush
