About Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Day
Join us for an informative afternoon filled with presentations on pulmonary fibrosis. Everyone is invited to attend!
The September 7th Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Day event will be a first annual educational symposium for the Atlanta community with the goal of raising awareness and fostering advocacy for patients and families dealing with this disease. We also hope to highlight resources that exist for these patients in and around our community, including support groups, physical therapy programs, and opportunities to participate in research studies that may one day lead to a cure. Similar events will be taking place all over the world.
