COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, affects 30 million people in the United States, and smoking is the leading cause.

Now, a new therapy program is designed to improve the lives and lungs of people with COPD.

In Healthy Living, see how a program called Harmonicas for Health, is producing promising results by making music.

Harmonicas for health is supported by the COPD Foundation and the Academy of Country Music.
