Interstitial Lung Disease - An Overview
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an umbrella term used for a large group of diseases that cause scarring (fibrosis) of the lungs. Join presenter Dr. Stacey Lok as she provides an overview of ILD.
About The Presenter - Dr. Stacey Lok, MD, FRCPC
Dr. Lok is a Respirologist and a recipient of the 2019-2020 CPFF Robert Davidson Fellowship. She completed her Interstitial Lung Disease fellowship at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Drs. Kerri Johannson and Charlene Fell. She completed her medical school, internal medicine, and respirology residencies at the University of Saskatchewan and has collaborated with Dr. Veronica Marcoux from the U of S.
When Dr. Lok was in her first year of medical school in Saskatchewan, her grandfather passed away from pulmonary fibrosis. At the time, she had a limited understanding of the disease. He was misdiagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and an appropriate diagnosis was delayed until his condition was quite severe. This experience drove her to pursue a career dedicated to the care of patients living with ILD.
