Event Details

The California Partnership for Access to Treatment (CPAT) is pleased to host a free educational seminar on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. and affects an estimated 1.1 million Californians.

Join COPD experts and members of community clinics, social service agencies, health care organizations, public health departments and other health care stakeholders to learn more about COPD. This event will educate local communities by:

  • Offering up-to-date information on this devastating respiratory disease, including the behavioral and environmental factors that cause it;
  • Addressing the need for greater collaboration and increased resources for prevention, early diagnosis and treatment;
  • Exploring the emerging role of clinical service providers as Accountable Care Organizations, in partnership with formal and informal health services, to foster long-term cost savings and improved health outcomes; and
  • Informing attendees about the long-term impact of early diagnosis and the projected negative fiscal impact on our region's aging population if there are no improvements.

Guest Speakers Include:

Bruce Beck, MD, Medical Director of Pulmonary Rehabilitation, El Camino Hospital

James Canfield, MBA, RPFT,
Lead Diagnostic/Interventional Pulmonary Technologist, Respiratory Medicine, Interventional Pulmonary Service, El Camino Hospital

Margo Sidener, MS, CHES, President & CEO, Breathe California of the Bay Area
