COPD-Alert's Vlady Rozenbaum Shares COPD Patient's Perspective with International Journal on Disease Management

Vlady Rozenbaum, Ph.D., COPD patient and founder of COPD-Alert, an international online patient support and advocacy group, shared his personal perspectives while shining a bright light on COPD in a recent issue of Disease Management and Health Outcomes, an international peer-reviewed journal focusing on all aspects of disease management.  According to Rozenbaum, the article, titled "Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Between Reality and Expectations—A Patient's Perspective," details from his perspective "why COPD is stigmatized, under-recognized, under-treated and under-funded."  The article addresses important issues pertaining to diagnosis and management of COPD, including ambulatory oxygen, pharmacological treatments, pulmonary rehabilitation programs and the role of physician input.  In addition, the article recognizes the COPD Learn More Breathe Better® campaign and calls for COPD to become a leading health priority.

For your convenience, the article is available in:
Disease Management & Health Outcomes, Vol. 16, No. 5, pp.353-358
