Upcoming meeting topics will be specific to the needs and requests of our group, but will include tips for daily living with pulmonary fibrosis, oxygen therapy, treatment options, pulmonary rehab, and managing stress with a chronic condition. In addition to offering current and accurate educational topics, our group will offer individuals a welcoming, and private environment to share experiences, and find friendship during this challenging time.
