A new study led by Zafar Zafari, MSc, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (PHSR) at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, offers projected estimates of the health and economic burden associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the U.S. over the next 20 years.
