Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Care Center Network Site

The UT Southwestern Interstitial Lung Disease program is proud to be a designated site of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) Care Center Network (CCN). We are the only designated site in North Texas, and one of just 40 nationwide. This selection ensures that the UTSW ILD program has met the rigorous standards required by the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.

The goal of the network is to improve the quality of life of affected patients. Being a PFF CCN site ensures that you will be managed by an experienced multidisciplinary team with extensive expertise in the diagnosis and management of ILD, a commitment to supporting the patient and their family, and strong history of education and research to advance the field. 

As a designated site we will be participating the in the PFF Patient Registry. The goals of registry are to define and refine best practices, improve the quality of life of patients and advance research in the field. The Registry will eventually become the largest collection of data in the field and we are excited by the many opportunities that it will provide to improve treatment of these conditions.
