Resources for Patients and Families
While our staff is always available to discuss the individual needs in person, and we strongly encourage you to contact us directly to learn how we can help you, we do strive to provide as much online education and information as possible.
In this section are several options that may be of interest to you based on your individual circumstances.
- Patient Support – Links to support groups that meet in person throughout the country as well as links to online support groups that are endorsed by the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. We have seen tremendous growth in online support recently, and many patients now find this to be a much more immediate way to find others with PF, and share concerns, questions and personal challenges with PF within a community of other patients.
