How much do you know about NTM lung disease – a disease that is becoming more common in the United States – and how it could affect people living with other chronic lung diseases such as COPD or bronchiectasis who are at greater risk of developing the condition? Learn this and more from the COPD Foundation’s one-hour Let’s Talk About NTM Lung Disease webinar recording. Topics include how to identify signs and symptoms of NTM lung disease and limit exposure to the bacteria that causes this condition.
We were joined by two very special panelists, Dr. Ashwin Basavaraj of Bellevue Hospital Center and NYU School of Medicine, and John Torrence, an individual living with NTM lung disease and bronchiectasis. Dr. Basavaraj provided an overview of the disease, including symptoms, risk factors, diagnosis and treatment. Mr. Torrence offered insights on his experience with NTM lung disease and provided tips on advocating for yourself and what has made for a collaborative relationship between he and his healthcare team. The webinar ended with an opportunity for attendees to ask questions of the two speakers.
