COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) Awareness Month: November 2022

In light of COPD Awareness Month, it is essential to acknowledge the health disparities that put people of color and low-income populations at greater risk of COPD-related mortality. COPD risk factors include tobacco smoking and air pollution, which are most common in low-income areas. Furthermore, people of color are less likely to receive proactive, diligent care from doctors who make assumptions about their health habits. Studies show that Black people are nearly 2x more likely to die from COPD than white people.

Zebra Strategies is committed to identifying the factors that lead to delayed diagnoses, inaccessible treatment options, and disproportionate deaths among vulnerable populations.
