Transitioning from College to the Career World with CF

The Boomer Esiason Foundation has posted CF Wind Sprint 24: Transitioning from College to the Career World with CF on its website. http://esiason.org/thriving-with-cf/wind-sprint-24-transitioning-from-college-to-the-career-world-with-cf.php

This short video is the third in a three-part series examining the major transitioning stages for people with cystic fibrosis.

In this episode, we meet Gabriella Goldwin. For Gabriella, transitioning from college to the career world was similar to her earlier move to college, particularly regarding the need for a disciplined compliance schedule.

One of Gabriella’s biggest concerns about having a full-time job was how to deal with getting sick. Her fears were realized twice, but she found herself more than pleasantly surprised by the support of her co-workers.

The three transitioning CF Wind Sprints were made possible by a grant from Novartis Pharmaceuticals.

BEF invites the CF community to submit questions and topics for CF Wind Sprints via its Facebook fan page or on Twitter.

  1. Hi, I have been living with CF for 19 years now and in a couple months I’ll be trying to get a good job that pays more than Medicaid allows. Is there any advice you can give on what I can do for insurance while maintaining a job that pays more than Medicaid allows? Kinda lost right now and it’s a bit scary.
