It’s also important to address the climate crisis and take steps to directly combat the underlying environmental drivers of respiratory diseases like asthma and COPD. By tackling problems with multiple approaches, we can bridge the gap in care and achieve better outcomes for people living with respiratory disease.”

In addition to presenting research, Chiesi is engaging with the respiratory healthcare community through its support of early career investigator programs. The company is a Sapphire level sponsor of the Annual ATS Research Program Benefit on Saturday, May 18, from 6-7:30 p.m. PT.
