Four fun-filled days of country music

Country Stampede in Manhattan, Kansas

More than 150,000 people turned out for the largest annual music festival in Kansas — Country Stampede. Festival goers enjoyed four days of camping, great food and live outdoor performances from country stars including Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley.

Over the four days of the festival, the COPD tent was buzzing. More than 6,000 people stopped by our tent for information on COPD and almost 750 were screened for COPD.

Along with a healthy dose of COPD information
