COPD New Study University of Washington CLIMB

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is deadly.  The third leading cause of death in the U.S., the slow killer too often opens the door to other medical conditions.   Some really unpleasant.  COPD Studies have been few – the CLIMB Study may well be the springboard to real solutions for those who may follow us into the long slow smother – our kids and grandkids.

I’ve applied to be a part of it and look forward to the experience.   I hope you’ll join me…if for no other reason than to meet the incredible people involved…including the #1 in the nation study nurses at the University of Washington.

Thanks for listening… Sharon O’Hara
