Medical Crossfire®: Perfecting the Diagnosis and Treatment of EGPA: Patient Perspectives and Expert Insights will highlight current unmet medical needs and the most recent advances in the management of eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA). This program features a panel discussion of expert faculty specializing in the care of patients diagnosed with EGPA.
