COPD Blues - ALCPL
SINGING THE COPD BLUES
Respiratory therapist uses music to educate and motivate
ATHENS, Ala. – Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also known as COPD, affects more than 16 million Americans. In his 30 years as a certified respiratory therapist, Al Jean has often seen patients suffer and struggle unnecessarily due to...
...a lack of understanding about their disease. In order to help them, he created the COPD Blues, combining COPD education and music, providing an enjoyable and information-packed experience for his listeners.
Feb. 23, Jean will bring his COPD Blues to the Athens-Limestone County Public Library. COPD patients and their families are invited to come learn about COPD by listening to the music and having their questions answered afterward. This is a free program that will start at 1 p.m.
“Do you have shortness of breath? Do you get tired doing normal activities? Don’t ignore these symptoms, thinking that they are a part of aging,” warns Al Jean. “Come to the Athens-Limestone County Public Library to see and hear COPD Blues.”
Al Jean has been playing music for more than 50 years. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago Respiratory Therapy Program and National-Louis University, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Allied Health. In addition to performing, Jean will have CDs on sale at the library.
