"Your Disease Risk" Website Updated to Include Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema
Your Disease Risk - launched this week with some key scientific and content updates. In addition to select risk factor modifications driven by a content review by our scientific advisory panel, we added a new assessment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which estimates the risk of chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Adding the COPD assessment builds on a primary goal of the Your Disease Risk site - to highlight risk factors shared by many important chronic diseases.
