September is a global month long campaign to help raise awareness of Pulmonary Fibrosis, aid timely diagnosis and help patients with pulmonary fibrosis to get the treatment and care that they need.
This is our second Pulmonary Fibrosis chat of the month – & we’re delighted to be joined by Emmy award winner Mike Olsen.
