Cystic Fibrosis Family Night
Who we are
The Cystic Fibrosis Center at Boston Children's Hospital is one of the oldest and largest cystic fibrosis centers in the United States. Caring for more than 500 children and adults each year, the CF Center provides comprehensive services, ranging from evaluation and diagnosis to treatment and patient education.
The CF Center is proud to report that our patients continue to fare in the top 10 to 20 percent of patients nationwide for a variety of health parameters, including lung function and nutritional status.
Expertise that goes deep and reaches far
Children’s CF Center is staffed by an experienced team of clinicians, all of whom have specialized training in the care of patients with cystic fibrosis. Our multidisciplinary staff includes:
- pulmonary nurses
- nurse practitioner
- social workers
- physical therapists
- respiratory technologists
Our staff is involved in CF programs within the community, educates physician trainees at Harvard Medical School and is actively engaged in research into new treatments for cystic fibrosis—including potential therapies that target the lungs and digestive system and new treatments to correct the problems that cause CF.
