New Research Study for PF families

Hi everyone. The National Institutes of Health has funded our Families At-Risk for Interstitial Lung Disease (FAR-ILD) Study! We are actively enrolling men and women age 40 and older whose parent or sibling has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. If you agree to enroll, you will have to make at least 1 visit to our research center at Columbia University Medical Center in Manhattan. You can bring your family member with PF if they are also interested in being a part of the study (no free testing for them, but they can contribute blood samples). If you enroll, you will undergo a number of tests, including a free CAT scan of the chest so we can look at your lungs. 

If you are interested in learning more about the study, please give us a call at 212-342-1518, or send us an email at FARILD@Columbia.edu or, visit our website www.FAR-ILD.org
