Annual Conference 2021

10th-11th October 2021 – Virtual conference

The ILD-IN committee hosted their first 2-day virtual conference on 10-11th October 2021. The network welcomed a fantastic 120+ Health Care professionals. The conference was packed with ILD presentations and networking opportunities following an ILD patients’ journey… from diagnosis to end of life.

We would like to thank everyone involved, especially our delegates, chairs, speakers, sponsors and charity partners, as without all of their support and enthusiasm, this conference would not be possible.

We would like to remind delegates that recordings are now viewable on the event portal for 1 month. Simply log back in with the link that you used on the day of the conference.
