afpop and Luzdoc talk about health

afpop, the association for foreign residents in Portugal, and Luzdoc medical clinic will be presenting the third in their series of “Talk About Health” sessions – this time on the subject of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – on October 28 at Boavista Golf in Lagos.

COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstruction of the airflow from the lungs, making breathing difficult. People with COPD are at increased risk of developing heart disease, lung cancer and other conditions. It is one of the leading causes of death and a major cause of disability.

Speakers will be Dra Maria Alice, Dr Carlos Glória, Physiotherapist Rui Cintra and Nurse Ana Catarina Filipe.

Registration will begin at 2pm and the presentations will start at 2.30pm. Admission is free for afpop members and there will be a charge of €10 for non-members payable at the door.
