COVID-19 Information and Resources

During this unprecedented time, it is important to stay safe, stay healthy, but also stay connected! We, at PA IPF Patient and Caregiver Support Network, are here to help you navigate the global coronavirus pandemic. Information about COVID-19 and what you can do to keep yourself mentally and physically equipped during this time can be found below. 

Virtual Support Groups

As we continue to protect and maintain our physical well-being during the pandemic through social distancing, many opportunities still exist to connect virtually with others. We encourage you to explore our list of pulmonary fibrosis support groups in Pennslyvania to see if groups are continuing to meet virtually. Creating and maintaining connections with those who understand what you are going through is critical, especially during this time.
