IPF World Week in Italy: Open Day with healthcare professionals and patients

During the IPF World Week 2018, the Italian support group for patients with IPF AMA FUORI DAL BUIO will organize an Open Day with healthcare professionals and IPF patients at the Center for Rare Pulmonary Diseases at the Modena's hospital (Largo del Pozzo, 71 from 10:00am to 1:00pm). The aim of this event is to provide patients and their carers with up to date information on the latest research developments in IPF. Additionally, the event is supposed to be not only a moment during which patients can share their own experiences and best practices with other patients living with IPF, but also an occasion for researchers and doctors to present the new developments in the field of diagnosis and IPF care. The event will see the participation of Dr. Luppi, the director of the Center for Rare Pulmonary Diseases, Dr. Cerri, researcher at the same Center and Dr Magnani, coordinator of the IPF support group, together with Rosalba Mele, president of AMA FUORI DAL BUIO.  In the framework of this event, it will also be possible to benefit from free spirometries from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
