In celebration of National COPD Awareness month, the 4th Annual COPD Update was held on November 1, 2019 at Columbia College in Columbia, SC. This event was planned in collaboration by the SCSRC Midlands Region and the Chronic Disease Management specialty section. Six CRCE’s were provided attendees. Topics included COPD/ Sleep Apnea Overlap Syndrome, Avoiding the Crisis of Preventable Death, Smoking Cessation, Current and Future Practices in COPD Management, and Getting Meds for Home. The ever so popular discussion panel was a continued success. This year’s panel discussion explored the continuum of care and included a patient’s perspective. We would like to extend a big thank you to the vendors that joined us for the day and our lunch sponsors, as well as Columbia College for hosting and providing a wonderful breakfast.
Look for the date of the 5th Annual COPD Update to be announced in early 2020 and make plans to join us!
