Get involved in World COPD Day to raise awareness about the symptoms, risk factors and treatment for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). One in seven Australians 40 years or older has COPD and half of those who have progressed to a stage where they are experiencing symptoms will not know that they have it.
By helping Lung Foundation raise awareness you will help drive early detection of this disabling disease. Remember: breathlessness is not a normal part of ageing and shouldn’t be ignored.
If you are concerned about your lung health or need a check up, please contact our friendly Pelican Waters Family Doctors staff on 5439 7100 to make an appointment. Alternatively, you can book an appointment online via our website www.pelicanwatersfamilydoctors.com.au.
