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.

  4. A CT scan in August of 2009 verified that I had Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. My first symptoms were cough and shortness of breath. I was on prednisone and inhalers. My blood oxygen level was 50 and i was extremely short of breath, i was barely able to breath. I went through cardio pulmonary rehab, It helped but not too long before all the severe symptoms returned. December last year, a family friend told us about Rich Herbs Foundation and their successful lungs disease treatments, we visited their website www.richherbsfoundation.com and ordered their IPF herbal treatment, i am happy to report this treatment effectively reversed my Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and symptoms. I am back on my feet, i walk daily now and has made me able to walk my two dogs again without shortness of breath or sudden loss of energy. My activity level is up again.
