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 with our Adopt-A-Company program. As a DRIVER you’ll go into the small businesses in your community and, with the help of the management there, have employees answer the easy-to-use five-question population screener tool.
COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States, and is the only one on the rise. As much as 70% of the population who suffers from COPD are in the workplace. Together we can help raise awareness, but the first step is to get started.
