Lake Regional Provides New Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group

Friday, January 31, 2020

Lake Regional Health System is starting a new support group for individuals living with pulmonary fibrosis. Beginning Monday, Feb. 10, meetings will be at noon the second Monday of each month in the hospital’s Cardiac Rehab conference room. A light snack will be provided.

“We wanted to give our patients the opportunity to connect with others facing similar challenges,” said Lake Regional Pulmonology’s Cira Monnig, FNP, who will facilitate the group. “Participating in the group may improve your emotional well-being and have a positive impact on your overall health.”

Participants will learn practical information about their diagnosis. The session also will include informal time for discussion. Guest speakers will be planned for some of the meetings, including Pulmonologist Harjyot Sohal, M.D.

Anyone living with pulmonary fibrosis is invited to attend, along with caregivers. You do not have to be a Lake Regional patient to participate. For more information, email cmonnig@lakeregional.com.
