CanCOLD, a proud World COPD Day partner!

Editorial in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine written by Peter Calverley highlights CanCOLD’s contribution to COPD research.

Worldwide, healthcare professionals and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patient groups come together annually for the World COPD Day, a global initiative meant to raise awareness, share knowledge, and discuss ways to reduce the burden of COPD. Observed on every third Wednesday of November under a new theme every year, the campaign encourages collaboration and represents one of the world’s most important events in the realm of COPD awareness and education. Critical in advocating for better lung health and reducing the global impact of COPD, the Canadian Cohort Obstructive Lung Disease (CanCOLD) is proud to be a World COPD Day partner.


On November 15, the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), which hosts CanCOLD,  highlighted the study’s objectives, design and discoveries, and reinforced the significance of CanCOLD’s work and its position as leader in the field of COPD research. The MUHC Foundation expressed its support for CanCOLD, underlining  how the study aligns with their mission of “creating meaningful change, delivering excellence in patient care, and fostering a healthier community.” The CanCOLD study

contributes to MUHC’s commitment to supporting innovative research that “[paves] the way towards lifesaving respiratory care for millions of Canadians.”
