In honour of World Bronchiectasis Day, we look forward to presenting this webinar on airway clearance and exercise. 

Our mixed panel of both consumers and health professionals will answer key questions from the Bronchiectasis community. Our consumers will be sharing their experiences with exercise or airway clearance in helping to manage their Bronchiectasis symptoms, and our health professional representatives will provide expert guidance and advice on the topic. 

Both pre-submitted and live questions from participants joining the webinar will be answered by the panel.
