World COPD Day 2021
World COPD Day 2021 is on Wednesday 17 November. This year we want to support you to look after your lungs and live well with COPD.
Watch our Keeping well with COPD webinar with Dr Nick Hopkinson.
Life with COPD can be difficult. It's a progressive condition, which means there is currently no cure and everyday tasks can become a challenge.
What can you do to manage your COPD?
Managing your condition can help you to feel better and take some control of your life.
You can do a lot to help manage your condition yourself. Knowing all you can about your condition as well as keeping active can make a big difference.
Keeping active and doing exercise can make a big difference to both your physical and mental health.
Finding an activity that works for you and your condition is key. Discover something you enjoy that helps ease your symptoms and you'll find it easier to keep going!

Carol loved working as a nurse, but when she was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) she had to retire early. Since then, she’s committed to helping improve the lives of people with lung conditions. She hopes her knowledge and experience will help make a difference in lung health research.
