Pulmonary Wellness - How to Live Better With Pulmonary Fibrosis

We were very fortunate to have Dr. Noah Greenspan of the Pulmonary Wellness and Rehabilitation Center in NYC join us at our N. Texas PF Warriors support group meeting this morning.

Dr. Greenspan did not talk about progression of disease, prognosis, genetics, or even much about the future of treatments.  What Dr. Greenspan did talk about was how to live life to the fullest with pulmonary fibrosis.  He talked about exercise, supplemental oxygen, diet, infection control and the importance of pulmonary rehabilitation. Dr. Greenspan gave us all the time we wanted, and was still going strong answering questions when I have to leave.

Here are two vids of today's program.  We had to break it up into two parts due to all the time he spent with us.

If you have pulmonary fibrosis, are helping someone with PF, or even if you are involved as rehabilitation provider for folks in the PF community, you should take the time to watch these videos.

I can personally attest that the ideas that Dr. Greenspan shares in these videos will help folks to live better with pulmonary fibrosis.

Thanks to Baylor Health for providing the meeting space for our event today.
