Thursday, January 30, 2014

SAN DIEGO – Barbara Rogers, president and CEO of the National Emphysema/COPD Association, passed away Dec. 7. An appointee to the first CMS Program Advisory and Oversight Committee on the bidding program, Rogers supported portable oxygen technology, advocated for respiratory patients and encouraged them to get involved, too, AAHomecare said in a recent bulletin. “We have lost a great industry advocate who fought for freedom of choice for oxygen patients,” said Tom Ryan, AAHomecare president and CEO, in the bulletin.
