Conference History

COPD10USA is the fourth installment in a series of biennial conferences modeled after the successful COPD Conference Series held in Europe for the past 18 years. Founded by international experts, Professors Robert Stockley and Sue Hill, the COPD Conference Series has helped thoUSAnds of clinicians and researchers improve the care of their patients living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease worldwide. Unlike other COPD conferences that focus solely on the scientific and research aspects of COPD, the COPD Conference Series is designed to provide practical information for clinical management as well as the latest in clinical and basic research.

In 2011, with support from the organizers of the European COPD conference series, the COPD Foundation hosted COPD7USA, the first biennial COPDUSA conference. The COPD7USA conference was an incredible success. The conference featured world renowned COPD experts as faculty and addressed practical issues facing the healthcare provider team. Using the European conference as a model, COPD7USA was designed to bring together leading experts from all over the world producing the unique opportunity to see and meet them face to face in a single venue where delegates and speakers mingle at lunch and break times. Since 2011, the COPD Foundation has hosted COPD8USA and COPD9USA.
