SAVE YOUR BREATH Louisville
What exactly is COPD?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease that affects tens of millions of Americans and is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
The prevalence of COPD in Kentucky (10.3% in 2013) is higher than anywhere else in the United States.
SAVE YOUR BREATH is a community campaign that is challenging COPD afflicted residents of the greater Louisville area to sign up to REVON, a FREE new app to track their symptoms and take steps to improve their quality of life.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says,
“In addition to using data to improve lives, I’m happy to announce that REVON has entered into a relationship with TreesLouisville. For every ten patients who use the REVON platform, REVON will donate one tree to TreesLouisville. Donating trees to improve air-quality tackles the same health issue, just from a different angle.”
