The American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) has partnered with the COPD Foundation to continue the battle on raising awareness of COPD through the DRIVE4COPD.

We are asking AARC members to participate by becoming DRIVERS and screening those in your community. As a DRIVER you’ll go into your community and screen the public to find those at risk for COPD. This event is important not only for driving awareness about COPD, but also to promote who we are as respiratory therapists.

COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States, and is the only one on the rise. Together we can help drive awareness, and promote our profession.
