Demonstrating continued excellence in the field of COPD, the UCLA Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Program along with its varied Centers of Excellence, is often the subject of stories in newspapers, magazines, and journals.

The UCLA COPD Program works with primary care and other referring providers to coordinate expedient visits and to ensure strong continuity and coordination of care.
The Department also frequently issues news releases to keep the community informed on the latest developments in COPD, the treatments available at UCLA, and various milestones within the Department.
