PFF Summit, Washington, DC, November 12-14, 2015

The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation will be holding its 3rd Summit in Washington, D.C. from November 12 to 14. I am planning on being there along with many other health care professionals and scientists who are passionate about raising awareness and finding a cure for PF. If you are a patient with PF or if someone you love has PF, I strongly encourage you to attend the Summit. You will have the opportunity to meet doctors, scientists, and other patients and caregivers. Special sessions are planned just for patients and caregivers. You can learn more about the Summit, including information about online registration at http://www.pffsummit.org/register.html.

I hope to see you there!

    1. I don't have any expertise in this area. I'm sorry I don't have a good answer for you. I found this online: http://belgium.usembassy.gov/visa_waiver_program.html. I hope it is helpful.

  3. I’m diagnosed with Chronic Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis. It looks like the emphasis is on IPF...is there any point for me to attend.

    1. Great question! The emphasis is on PF in general -- that includes IPF, chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and dozens of other kinds of PF. Having chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis is a good reason to attend the PFF Summit.
