Description: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD, is a leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 150,000 deaths annually. Nationwide millions are affected by the disease, which imposes an enormous burden on individuals with COPD, their caregivers, and the nation’s health care system, especially in rural communities.

The COPD National Action Plan, the first-ever blueprint for a multi-faceted, unified fight against the disease, provides a comprehensive framework for action by those affected by the disease and those who care about reducing its burden. This one-day, in-person meeting will bring together rural health and COPD experts to further the dialogue on how to address the goals and objectives of the COPD National Action Plan from a rural perspective and move toward its implementation by identifying challenges, opportunities, and resources; exploring solutions; sharing best practices; and fostering collaboration. A report will be developed and a webinar will be held later in the summer to summarize key findings from the meeting that can be referenced as organizations move toward implementation of the National Action Plan in rural communities.
