NHS Tayside hosted an awareness stand at Ninewells to promote World COPD Day and share information about research.

The team was very busy talking to patients, visitors and staff about the condition as well as research studies taking place in Tayside on COPD and Bronchiectasis.

COPD is an umbrella term for a number of progressive lung diseases such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema.  It is the fifth biggest killer in the UK and the World Health Organisation lists it as the fourth leading cause of death worldwide.
