Thank a respiratory therapist during Respiratory Care Week
This is also the week to turn into Health Link on Air radio at 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, on Newsradio 570 106.9 WSYR. Joseph Sorbello, associate professor of respiratory therapy in the College of Health Professions, speaks about respiratory care week in general and COPD in particular.
COPD stands for Chronic, Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a progressive disease in which people struggle to breathe. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of COPD, but long-term exposure to chemical fumes, air pollution or dust can also contribute.
Listen to Sorbello's Health Link interview.
