Rare Disease Day 2017

Join the PFF this February!

During the week of February 27, 2017, the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) will join patient organizations around the world for Rare Disease Day.

Rare Disease Day is an opportunity to raise awareness among government officials, researchers, industry representatives, and the general public about the impact of rare diseases. Volunteers and staff from the PFF will gather in Washington, DC to advocate for the needs of people living with pulmonary fibrosis before policy makers.
