COVID-19 was initially thought to be a virus that was confined to respiratory tract. Although the complications of COVID-19 extend well beyond the respiratory tract, patients with underlying pulmonary diseases are significantly impacted by this infection. In this webinar, experts will review the impact of COVID-19 on respiratory health and patients with asthma and COPD. They will review the strategies to protect these patients as well as managing these conditions during the pandemic.


This program has received financial support from Moderna in the form of an unrestricted educational grant.
