Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a serious lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. Common symptoms that people often mistake as normal signs of aging include wheezing, shortness of breath, ongoing coughing, chest tightness, or a combination of all. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms, talk with a health care provider about getting a breathing test. Share this animation with others to spread the word.

The School of Health Professions and Wellness lost one of the best. Annette was a favorite of students, faculty, and staff. She will be greatly missed.

It is with profound sorrow to announce the passing of JSU Instructor of Nursing, Annette Daugherty, MSN, R.N. As a graduate of Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing and Jacksonville State University, Annette possessed extensive experience in nursing as a caregiver, administrator, and educator. We honor her years of dedication to her patients, students, colleagues, and the nursing profession. The impact of her commitment to the nursing discipline, passion for education, and love for her students will be felt for generations. The JSU Nursing family wishes to offer our deepest condolences and prayers to all family and loved ones. Funeral services will be held at FBC Jacksonville 7th Street Campus this Saturday, November 16th at 2:00, with visitation beginning at noon. The graveside service will be private for the family.
