Managed Health Services (MHS) is sponsoring the American Lung Association’s (ALA) 2013 Healthy Lung Expo and TB Symposium, a comprehensive lung-health educational conference taking place on Tuesday, April 16 at the Indianapolis Marriott East.

This annual Healthy Lung Expo is a one-day conference with two separate tracks — one targeting lung health patients and their families and one targeting lung health professionals. The patient education program features COPD, lung cancer and asthma sessions for patients and caregivers; the professional education program offers Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for nurses and respiratory therapists. There will also be an additional track this year in the TB Symposium.

MHS Medical Director Dr. John Ellis will be a featured speaker on a panel of lung health and industry professionals providing participants a forum for open discussion. There will be two open discussions — one for patients and one for professionals — during the conference’s breakout time slots.

American Lung Association“The Healthy Lung Expo is an opportunity for patients, caregivers and health care providers to learn more about the latest trends, resources and research surrounding lung health,” said Meghan McNulty, Manager of Mission Services of the ALA in Indiana. “The event will host approximately 800 people and give all attendees the opportunity to learn facts about lung health but also network and participate in an awards ceremony and prize raffle.”

“We look forward to participating both as a sponsor and an exhibitor for the 2013 Healthy Lung Expo and TB Symposium,” said MHS CEO Patrick Rooney. “This conference offers the chance for both patients and professionals to learn about exciting research in the world of lung health as well as hear from some inspirational speakers. We hope attendees will come away from the Healthy Lung Expo having learned something new and made some connections.”

Lunch is plated; complimentary oxygen refills and valet parking will be available. Medical staff will also be on hand to assist. Registration is $5 for patients; $25 for students; and $75 for professionals. Registration cost includes all meals, program materials, presentations, access to exhibitors and raffle ticket.
