Wednesday 16th November is World COPD Day 2011. At Education for Health we want to use this opportunity to raise awareness of COPD and change perceptions.
We will be hosting a live, one hour, web-chat on the day from 16.00 (GMT). Tweets from any country or region are welcome at any time – just remember to include the #WorldCOPDday hash tag to ensure participants are able to view your posts!
We hope this this activity will keep an ongoing, open dialogue between patients, healthcare professionals, journalists, tweeters and bloggers and help raise awareness about the impact of COPD on active and productive patients across the world.
The Twitter chat will be led by Monica Fletcher, CEO of Education for Health and we hope to provide a friendly, informative and dynamic debate where all participants can freely post questions and answers. Curiosity and “brutal facts” are welcome; the quality of dialogue is only as good as those who participate, so get involved.
