community outreach

 

We are proud to offer programs for the cystic fibrosis community including the Speakers Bureau, Academic Scholarships, the Founders and Jacoby Angel Awards, Clinical Trial information, and everything you need to know about Conferences and Retreats.

The Board of Directors of the Adult US Cystic Fibrosis Association is proud to support a SPEAKERS BUREAU bringing the voices and personal perspectives of adults living with CF to the CF community including fundraisers, education days, conferences and other events. USACFA will cover all expenses of providing speakers for your event.

Every two years FOUNDERS AND JACOBY ANGEL AWARDS are given to members in the CF Community. Our CF Roundtable® readers nominate individuals who make outstanding contributions to the CF Community. The USACFA Board of Directors votes on the nominees. Nominations will be accepted in the summer of 2019 with the Award Ceremony in the fall. Please click here for more information about past nominations and how to nominate someone. 

Research advancements for Cystic Fibrosis are occurring at a record pace. CLINICAL TRIALS are focused on attacking CF from many different angles such as treating the underlying cause of CF as well as treating the symptoms of CF such as infection, inflammation, and gastrointestinal complications.
