October 2015


We’re offering a couple of seminars during the remainder of the month of October – one in Scottsdale, Arizona, and another in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. If either of these locations is near you, we invite you to join us to learn more about the therapies we offer for lung disease.

For more information about these and other upcoming events, visit our event calendar.

This month, we have two blogs to highlight that focus on COPD. You can find a link to each one below.

It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to lose weight or start an exercise plan; it’s hard to notice your gains when keeping all the data in your head.
