NOTTINGHAM, England (Oct. 19, 2006)—Veronika Melhuish-Williams, a Luxfer-sponsored PhD student at the University of Southampton, recently attended the European Respiratory Society’s 15th annual congress held in Munich, Germany.

Representing the university’s School of Health Professions and Rehabilitation Sciences, Veronika and her colleagues developed and presented a poster entitled ‘A Breath Of Fresh Air – Activity Needs In COPD‘ aimed at promoting the benefits of physical exercise in pulmonary rehabilitation.
