The Right2Breathe Campaign is dedicated to providing free COPD Screenings at automotive events and creating tobacco prevention programs for kids. Joe Morrison from Right 2 Breathe joins us today and shares his story behind creating the non profit organization dedicated to COPD Awareness.
With the recent opening of the bodhi breathe studio (yoga, pilates, meditation) it just makes sense for us to join forces with Joe and his crew.
Right 2 Breathe and bodhi by anthony monetti will be hosting a free health screening in the upcoming months, join the bodhi newsletter (here) for news and updated info on this!
What is COPD?
COPD is a major cause of disability, and it’s the third leading cause of death in the United States. Currently, millions of people are diagnosed with COPD. Many more people may have the disease and not even know it.
COPD develops slowly. Symptoms often worsen over time and can limit your ability to do routine activities. Severe COPD may prevent you from doing even basic activities like walking, cooking, or taking care of yourself.
Most of the time, COPD is diagnosed in middle-aged or older adults. The disease isn’t passed from person to person—you can’t catch it from someone else.
COPD has no cure yet, and doctors don’t know how to reverse the damage to the airways and lungs. However, treatments and lifestyle changes can help you feel better, stay more active, and slow the progress of the disease.**
