PULMONARY FIBROSIS FOUNDATION’S BIENNIAL PFF SUMMIT 2019


CHICAGO, May 18, 2019 – Patients and caregivers will join physicians, researchers and industry professionals at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s (PFF) biennial PFF Summit, Nov. 7-9, 2019.

“PFF Summit not only brings leading researchers and physicians together to present the latest developments in pulmonary fibrosis, but it also provides an extraordinary setting for patients and caregivers to offer hope and support for one another,” said William T. Schmidt, President and CEO of the PFF.

Last year’s record attendance of 895 people at the PFF Summit in Nashville reflected a 27 percent increase over 2015 Summit attendance. Members of the pulmonary fibrosis community from 46 states and 12 countries attended sessions on topics ranging from the role of genetics to the need for faster diagnosis of patients with the devastating lung disease. 

Pulmonary fibrosis affects 200,000 Americans and causes more than 40,000 deaths annually. Fifty-thousand new cases are diagnosed each year. There is no known cure.

Registration for PFF Summit 2019 will open in April. Sponsorship opportunities are currently available. For more information, please contact Jennifer Mefford at 312-546-405 or jmefford@pulmonaryfibrosis.org.
