House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: October 3, 2018 03:34 PM
From: Representative Kathy L. Rapp
To: All House members
Subject: Resolution Designating the Month of November 2018 as "COPD Awareness Month" in Pennsylvania
I will be introducing a resolution in the near future designating the month of November 2018 as "COPD Awareness Month" in Pennsylvania.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) affects over 24 million individuals in the United States, killing more than 120,000 Americans every year. It affects an estimated 714,000 residents of Pennsylvania and is the fourth leading cause of death in the Commonwealth.

Please consider joining me in this resolution to promote greater public awareness, enhance education, erase the stigma and increase early diagnosis of this disease in order to save lives and reduce health costs in this Commonwealth.

Introduced as HR1164
