Dubbed the "Superbowl of Country Music," the 2011 Jamboree in the Hills music festival celebrated its 35th year of bringing major country music acts to Ohio. Over twenty live outdoor performances by country stars including Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, and Tim McGraw drew more than 75,000 fans to the festival to revel in good music and tasty fair food.
Over the course of the four day festival, more than 6,000 people stopped by the Country Conquers COPD tent for important COPD information and their chance to win a Gibson J45 acoustic guitar.
Located in a high-visibility area near an entrance to the festival and our friends at the Gibson Guitar Tour Bus, the COPD booth was bustling with folks interested in learning more about the signs and symptoms of COPD, as well as testing and treatment. Plus, more 700 eager concert-goers obtain were able to take advantage of free spirometry testing being conducted onsite.
We send out our special thanks to Gibson, the COPD Foundation, and members of the Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia Respiratory Care Societies, who helped make this event a success.
