Washington State first COPD Public Meeting by a major organization, the American Lung Association of Washington, was a huge success.... and EFFORTS opened the COPD Awareness door, and led the way.

Held Wednesday, December 14, 2005 at Seattle's historic Swedish Cultural Center, the COPD patients, physicians, the American Lung Association of Washington folks, speakers, caregivers and family members united in a common cause.

Please note EFFORTS pin on my left lapel... and briefcase full of JJ's informative EFFORTS Newsletters... they wen♪t like hotcakes at a Boy Scout Camp.

We had many EFFORTS folks attend and help with this event including Lee Vogel and his better half Mark Kagi was there (I spotted his legs and oxygen carrier, Segway) parked against the far wall... several others including Barry Gilbert and Christine.
