The Drive4COPD campaign is making great progress towards its goal of identifying the “missing millions” who have COPD but don’t know it.

Since the campaign was launched on Feb. 3, 250,000 screeners have been completed. That’s more than the population of Orlando, FL.

You and your fellow AARC members have had a big role in that accomplishment, reaching out to people in your communities to make sure everyone has a chance to answer the five simple questions that can help identify people at highest risk for the condition.

If you have yet to get involved, check out our special Drive4COPD website to learn more about the AARC’s role in the campaign and what you can do to help.

You can also listen to a podcast featuring AARC President Tim Myers speaking about the campaign with campaign spokesperson, racecar driver Danica Patrick.
