Interview: Lung & Blood Institute Research for ILD

March 21 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am CDT

Many of us consider lung health information coming from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to be valuable from a trusted source. The NIH also provides information on other conditions. When funding research, how does a federal agency select the diseases?

Join the PF Warriors on March 21st when our Chief Executive Warrior, Teresa Barnes interviews representatives of The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI). We will explore the current state of interstitial lung disease (ILD) research and funding and look into the future of what may be possible.


1. Introduction to National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

2. Discuss the impact of recent changes in NHLBI’s lung division structure. 

3. Explore NHLBI’s research, advocacy, and support for PF patients.
