“The Stark Truth” – What is it like to die from COPD?

The New York City Department of Health launched a new advertising campaign, in early March 2011, which graphically depicts the suffering of those dying from smoking-related lung disease. The city’s new ad campaign hopes to convey the message that dying from smoking-related lung disease is seldom quick and painless.

The Metro New York newspaper covered the launch of the new advertising campaign and asked Dr. Ronald Crystal (Chairman of the Department of Genetic Medicine and Principal Investigator) to outline the stages that one goes through, from the development of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD; including chronic bronchitis and emphysema), to death.

The article, in the March 9, 2011 issue, is below in pdf form and can also be downloaded from the Metro NY’s website.

Dr. Crystal and the Dept. of Genetic Medicine Featured on NY1 TV

Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College seem to have made a revolutionary discovery that may inspire more smokers to put out their butts a lot faster.” –NY1

Dr. Ronald Crystal (Chairman of Genetic Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and Principal Investigator) was featured on NY1 television to talk about how a simple blood test may detect signs of emphysema, or lung damage, before symptoms develop in smokers. Smoking is the main cause of lung disease, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and emphysema. This simple blood test, is still under investigation; however, Dr. Crystal and researchers in the Department of Genetic Medicine hope that this blood test will help smokers detect signs of emphysema and inspire them to quit before it is too late.
