Description:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the 4th leading cause of death in Ireland but awareness of COPD is known to be low. COPD Support Ireland is Ireland’s first charity established to support those living with COPD. For World COPD Day 2014, a “Save Your Breath” roadshow providing COPD information and free spirometry testing travelled to five locations around Ireland. The aim of the clinic was to increase public awareness of COPD. Mobile clinics also took place for World COPD Day 2013, in different locations.
