The Inaugural Childhood Interstitial Lung Disease (chILD) Summit, originally scheduled as part of the TSANZ Annual Scientific Meeting 2020, will now proceed as a virtual event. Lung Foundation Australia will host the consumer session on Thursday 12 November 2020 via a webinar. We encourage you to register for this event and join from the comfort of your home on the day.

Connect with others and hear the latest information from both local and international speakers with expertise in chILD in this two-hour program.

The morning session is exclusive to parents and carers and will focus on topics including preparing for school, self-care for carers and a Centrelink/NDIS presentation.

There will also be a summary of the scientific education session provided, covering information and developments in chILD and paediatric lung disease, as well as an insight into the genomic approaches to the diagnosis of chILD. An interactive question and answer panel will take place at the end of the session.
