WPRNY recently steamed three live internet events for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. The reason the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation decided to host live events, as opposed to taping the events and posting them for viewing after the fact, was so that viewers would be able to call in with real questions, which could be answered by the panel of experts.
The first web broadcast was from Columbia University on Lung Transplantation for Pulmonary Fibrosis. The second webinar was broadcast live from Yale University on the various forms of Pulmonary Fibrosis called IPF. The third live internet broadcast was from the Hershey Medical Center, part of Penn State, and the subject matter was developing advocacy and support groups for IPF.
People with Pulmonary Fibrosis may find it difficult to travel. So the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation did a great service to bring the leading physicians onto the screens of those effected.
