A recent survey revealed that 86% of Americans don’t know the symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a disease that affects more than 200,000 people in the U.S. The LCWA team is working closely with the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) to improve awareness of this progressive and debilitating disease that leads to scarring of the lungs, with no known cure. In February, we scheduled a series of TV and radio interviews for Dr. Gregory Cosgrove, Chief Medical Officer of the PFF, with syndicated and local broadcasts across the country. Dr. Cosgrove educated audiences about the risk factors of PF, as well as the common symptoms of the disease. His message was well-received, with more than 750 airings for an audience of 23 million.
