And COPD at the Chicago Country Music Festival

Campaign staff and volunteers provided important COPD information to more than 5,500 people at the festival. With the help of the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago over 330 people were able to take advantage of free spirometry testing during the two day period! And many more were able to talk with lung health experts and get their questions answered.
