We invite you to attend the 3rd World Bronchiectasis Conference to be held on July 12-14, 2018 at Georgetown University in Washington DC.
The Conference is a focused, cutting-edge gathering of the world’s experts on bronchiectasis and nontuberculous mycobacterial lung infections. Highlights include presentations of the most up to date research on disease mechanisms in bronchiectasis, including new understandings on the role of inflammation, infection and the microbiome. Clinical topics will include sessions on the diagnosis and treatment of bronchiectasis and NTM infections, including small group, case-based presentations specifically aimed at understanding the role of airway clearance, anti-inflammatory treatments and antibiotics.
Saturday morning, July 14th will be focused on the management of patients with nontuberculous mycobacterial lung infections and will be of particular interest to pulmonologists and infectious disease practitioners who treat patients with these challenging infections.
The meeting brings together the expertise of the US Bronchiectasis Research Registry and the European Bronchiectasis Registry (EMBARC) principal investigators as well as experts from Canada, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. This program will benefit the entire healthcare team who care for patients with bronchiectasis and NTM infections including pulmonologists, infectious disease physicians, pharmacists, nurses and respiratory care practitioners.
