From Monday 10 to Thursday 13 April 2017 the Lung Week (‘Week van de Longen’) will be organized in ‘De Heerlickheijd’ in Ermelo. The Lung Week is the continuation of the Lung Days, which has started five years ago as a successful scientific conference for scientists, pulmonologists, pediatricians, family physicians, technicians, health care professionals and patients.

The Lung Days have been merged with the annual post-academic education programs of the NVALT (pulmonologists) and SKL (pediatric pulmonologists). The Lung Week is more than ever the place to be for everybody in The Netherlands involved in science and care related to respiratory diseases. The Lung Week is the national place for sharing new developments in science and cutting edge patient care, for political debates and for career setting networking activities within the respiratory field.

This year the Theme will be: A Life Long Lungs, closely related to the National Program Lungresearch, which was recently released by the NRS. Many pulmonary diseases have their origin in childhood and have lifelong effects, often ending in severe disabilities, handicaps or early death. The respiratory science field is extremely dedicated to relief this burden and the Lung Week is an important stage to set steps forward.

On Monday and Thursday we organize educational sessions for pulmonologists. We cordially invite all NRS members to join the Lung Week onTuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 April 2017. Please take the stage and share your latest research results with colleagues, caregivers, patient representatives and policymakers. The website will be released soon to register.
