Release time: 2020-08-11

Shanghai, China, Aug. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/-- Zhongchao Inc. (NASDAQ: ZCMD) (“Zhongchao” or the “Company”), a healthcare services company offering patient management, online healthcare information, professional training and educational services, today announced that it has partnered with the China Association of Health Promotion and Education (the “CAHPE”) on developing live interactive programs/courses (the “Project”) aiming to promote and implement the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (the “GOLD”) in China.  

 

Launched in 1997 in collaboration with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of U.S. National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization, GOLD is a global initiative to raise awareness of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (“COPD”) and to improve prevention and treatment of this lung disease for patients around the world. GOLD’s primary objectives include: i) Recommend effective COPD management and prevention strategies for use in all countries; ii) Increase awareness of the medical community, public health officials and the general public that COPD is a public health problem; iii) Decrease morbidity and mortality from COPD through implementation and evaluation of effective programs for diagnosis and management; iv) Promote study into reasons for increasing prevalence of COPD including relationship with environment; and v) Implement effective programs to prevent COPD.

 

The Project decomposes the guidelines covered in the latest GOLD (2020 Edition) and converts them into scene-based, live interactive programs/courses. These programs/courses are available in diverse forms, including articles, case studies, video demos, interactive graphics, prescription simulations, expert interviews and academic salons, and offer a convenient and effective way for medical workers to better apply the latest GOLD guidelines to their clinical practices.        

 

Weiguang Yang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zhongchao, commented, “For more than two decades, the GOLD has been offering practical guidelines for health care professionals and public health officials around the world in coping with COPD. The Project is a result of the close collaboration between Zhongchao and CAHPE along with the deep involvement of many subject experts. We believe the Project offers medical workers in China an effective way to keep abreast of the latest developments in COPD, help improve their clinical practice capabilities and eventually benefit COPD patients.”
