Clearing the Air: Living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Setup

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is the third leading killer in the US, yet it rarely commands the attention paid to #1 heart disease and #2 cancer. As both advocate and patient, Grace Anne Dorney-Koppel is fighting to change that. After being given less than five years to live in 2001, Grace Anne embarked on an ambitious rehab program, and now helps fund pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation clinics across the country. She will participate in this session by video-conference because Aspen’s high altitude makes it impossible for her to attend. On stage will be her husband, noted broadcaster Ted Koppel, and Dr. James Crapo, a renowned pulmonologist and COPD researcher from National Jewish Health, the nation’s leading respiratory hospital.
