Monday August 30, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:45 PM
Hosted By Grifols
COPD is challenging to manage and further complicated by its rare genetic form, alpha1-anti-trypsin deficiency (alpha-1). Alpha-1 is an underdiagnosed disease, with patients, on average, seen by 2.7 physicians over 8.3 years before receiving a correct diagnosis. Learn how Grifols is partnering with health systems to diagnose, manage, and treat COPD patients with alpha-1. You will have an opportunity to interact with a panel of decision-makers and learn about an initiative that is positively impacting patient experiences.
