Involving patients and their families in the activities of BREATH, the Hannover site of the German Center for Lung Research (DZL e.V.), is an important part of our work.
The Lung Information Service (LID) is an essential component of the DZL in this respect. It offers, in German language, easily understandable knowledge on all aspects of lung diseases from research and medical viewpoints.
In addition, we have been offering patient seminars in Hannover since 2014. In these meetings, experts from Hannover Medical School give talks that are understandable for patients on the origin and development of the various types of lung disease. The factors responsible for the development of the disease are explained as well as the diagnosis and possible courses of therapy. The doctors also allow sufficient time for questions and discussions.
In the section „Events“ on our homepage, you will find information about planned events for patients. Please contact us if you are interested in attending these meetings. We would be pleased to add your name to our distribution list.
