Nontuberculous Mycobacteria Patient Education Program

People who have been diagnosed with nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections are invited to attend an education program hosted by the Bronchiectasis and Cystic Fibrosis Program at NYU Langone.

The NTM Patient Education Program was started in 2015 to give those living with these conditions the unique opportunity to interact directly with our physicians, ask questions, and learn about the latest advances in the diagnosis and treatment of NTM infections.

Our next virtual NTM Patient Education program will be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 from 3:00-6:00PM. For more information and to register, please email marla.hymes@nyulangone.org.
