This is the fifth consecutive year for the one-day COPD conference, and this year, we are adding a second day focused entirely on asthma. This meeting is intended for all healthcare providers involved in the care and management of patients with COPD and/or Asthma. This two-day conference will feature the most recent GOLD and GINA strategy in the diagnosis, management and treatment of patients with COPD or Asthma.
