WOMEN & LUNG HEALTH CONFERENCE AND LUNCHEON
The statistics on women and lung disease are staggering.
In the past five years, more women died of COPD than men. In 2002 alone, more than 61,000 women died of COPD.
Over the past 30 years, the cases of lung cancer among women have increased by 143%, compared to a 9% increase among men. In 1987, lung cancer surpasses breast cancer to become the leading cause of cancer deaths in women.
Together we can change the numbers.
