Last Week’s Hot Topic on Pulmonary Fibrosis



Last week’s hot topic on pulmonary fibrosis was Country Music Star Joe Nichols Shares His Dad’s IPF Story in ‘Breathless,’ a Public Awareness Campaign written by Daniela Semedo.

This article was about country music artist Joe Nichols partnering with Boehringer Ingelheim to raise awareness about idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Nichols’ father, Michael Nichols, suffered with IPF symptoms for three years before receiving the diagnosis, and he died from the condition at age 46.

“Boehringer Ingelheim is proud to be supporting Breathless: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at IPF as part of the company’s long-standing commitment to addressing the significant, unmet needs of people affected by respiratory diseases,” said Al Masucci, vice president, IPF Business Unit, Boehringer Ingelheim. “Despite the severity of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, many people suffer in the dark for years before receiving a diagnosis. This shouldn’t be the case, and through the campaign we hope to educate and encourage people to recognize the signs of IPF and to see a doctor as early as possible.”
