House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: September 25, 2019 11:04 AM
From: Representative Kathy L. Rapp
To: All House members
Subject: Resolution Designating the Month of November 2019 as "COPD Awareness Month" in Pennsylvania
I will be introducing a resolution in the near future designating the month of November 2019 as "COPD Awareness Month" in Pennsylvania.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) affects millions of individuals in the United States. It affects an estimated 714,000 Pennsylvania residents and is the fourth leading cause of death in this 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 HR598
