Meeting Presentations - 2020

Owing to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on gatherings, the Support Group have moved to temporarily hosting general meetings online using Zoom.   We regularly invite professionals to present information, relevant to support group members and their families, to learn more about Pulmonary Fibrosis, available treatments, and disease management.

This page provides the opportunity to view slides delivered by presenters at our online meetings. Details of up coming meetings can be found under Events.

If you are not already a member of the support group and would like more information about how to attend future meetings please contact us at info@papworthpfsupportgroup.org.uk
