The US COPD Coalition is excited to present a free, two-part webinar series that will focus on helping COPD patients stay healthy, both mentally and physically, as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.  Everyone on the webinar can post questions that will be answered by our panelists. 
The first webinar, “Coping with Stress in Difficult Times”, featuring psychologist Arpi Minassian, Ph.D., will be broadcast live at 3-4 pm Eastern (9-10am Hawaii time) on Wednesday, June 24th. Dr. Minassian will help you learn more about stress and where it comes from, as well has how to recognize signs of stress and anxiety. She will discuss tips for how to cope with emotional distress related to chronic medical conditions as well as the difficult times we are all facing.
