Though the actor Leonard Nimoy was well known for his legendary role as Mr. Spock, few people knew that he was diagnosed with COPD 30 years after he quit smoking. Since his death, Leonard’s family has developed a documentary to raise awareness of the impact of COPD; Novartis is proud to support this special initiative to educate viewers about COPD through Leonard’s and others’ personal stories.
Full documentary is due for release soon. For more information please visit www.copdllap.com.
Developed in collaboration with the British Lung Foundation in recognition of World COPD Day, this video demonstrates how patients with COPD are affected.
