The Roots 'N Blues performers were hoppin'!

The Roots 'N Blues 'N BBQ Festival was a weekend packed with great music, food and fun. Thousands of festival goers enjoyed performances from over 20 different acts including top names in roots and blues like the Del McCoury Band and husband and wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. The 4th Annual Kansas City BBQ contest and the half marathon also proved to be great fun for all.

And so was the Country Conquers COPD tent

More than 3,500 people stopped by our tent for information on COPD and almost 200 were screened for COPD. A special thanks to members of the Missouri Society for Respiratory Care, who performed spirometry, and the American Lung Association of the Central States, who provided important information about COPD.
