PF affects over 200,000 Americans annually and 50,000 people will be diagnosed this year alone.

Diagnosing and Treating Fibrosing Interstitial Lung Diseases
Stanford Interstitial Lung Disease Symposium
February 29, 2020
Stanford University hosted an Interstitial Lung Disease CME conference for MDs, APPs, RNs, and other allied healthcare professionals, entitled: Diagnosing and Treating Fibrosing Interstitial Lung Diseases. The overall goal of this symposium was to provide clinicians an in-depth and interactive seminar on the critical aspects of care for patients with fibrotic interstitial lung diseases (ILDs). Our keynote speaker, Dr. Kevin Brown from National Jewish Health, Denver, CO, addressed the role of anti-fibrotic therapies in non-IPF patients, and whether or not asymptomatic ILD patients should receive treatment. A case-based approach with a focus on radiologic interpretation was used to address management of ILD patients with connective tissue disease, unclassifiable disease, respiratory failure, hypoxemia, and familial lung fibrosis. The symposium attracted 100 attendees and provided a unique opportunity for case-based discussions with leading experts in the field.
The symposium took place at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge.
