NTM and Bronchiectasis: Research and Treatment Update

Friday, March 25, 2022
10:30 a.m. EDT | 9:30 a.m. CDT | 8:30 a.m. MDT | 7:30 a.m. PDT

Nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections, a non-contagious cousin of tuberculosis, has shown a marked increase in the U.S. population in recent years. Many NTM patients also develop bronchiectasis, a condition that inhibits the ability to naturally clear mucous and bacteria from the airways and puts individuals at ever-increasing risk of infection. Join Dr. Daley to learn about current and future NTM and bronchiectasis research and treatments.

Those in South Florida can join Dr. Daley LIVE at BRiC in Boca Raton for this dialogue. Register for in-person attendance here.
