About the PFF Summit

PFF Summit 2019 is the PFF's fifth biennial international health care conference on pulmonary fibrosis (PF). The goal of the Summit is to foster a collaborative environment to improve education and awareness of PF and to identify new approaches to treat, and ultimately cure, this devastating disease. The Summit will feature an innovative continuing medical education (CME) program for health care professionals, a continuing education (CE) program for nurses, respiratory therapists, and pharmacists, as well as provide sessions for PF patients, caregivers, transplant recipients, and those who have lost a loved one, that address their growing educational needs.

The Summit will be conducted in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

OUR HISTORY

Founded in 2000 by brothers Albert Rose and Michael Rosenzweig, PhD, the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to identifying effective PF treatments and assisting those living with the disease. The brothers experienced firsthand the devastating effects of PF when their sister Claire passed away from the disease. Both brothers were also diagnosed with PF, and it was their vision and dedication that led to the creation of the Foundation.
