With a mission to educate the public, the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is designating September as Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month.
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) kicks off its Global Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month this September 2015, with a mission to better educate the public on the chronic and crippling disease, and at the same time commemorate those patients bravely battling PF, letting them know where to get help and what is currently in the works in the field of research in terms of someday finding a cure. The Foundation’s activities throughout the month include social media campaigns that people from all over the globe can participate in, opportunities to get inspired from guest patients’ stories, as well as fun local activities for all ages.
“We dedicate the month of September to help shine a spotlight on doing something to eradicate pulmonary fibrosis while directing resources critical to those living with the disease,” said Patti Tuomey, EdD, president and chief executive officer of the PFF. “We are proud to lead the charge in mobilizing the community to raise awareness and funding, and we encourage everyone to join us in spreading the word.”
