Resources for the Community

Many of our community members find it helpful when we share various resources – both here at COPD.net and on our Facebook page. With that in mind, we bring you our list of “Resources for the Community” – please feel free to visit (and share!) any time you or someone you know may need any of the offerings listed below!

In addition to those listed here, we also encourage people to reach out to local, in-person options including physicians, specialists, support groups, or if necessary the emergency room.
