Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program
Adult CF Center
Accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), we are a premiere Cystic Fibrosis Center serving Upstate New York. Our Center adheres to the stringent standards set forth by the CF Foundation using approved guidelines resulting in an appropriate management of patients with CF. We provide a team approach to care that includes medical, nurse, registered dietitian, physical therapy, social worker, and respiratory therapy cystic fibrosis specialists. We collaborate closely with our colleagues in the University of Rochester Medical Center Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Center to assist adolescents and young adults in the transition from pediatric to adult care.

CFFC Education Night
It's only 27 days until CFFC Education Night - that's July 19th. We will be gathering at Steadfast, 200 East Ave. Rochester where the doors will open at 5:00 PM.
We'll start with food, beverages and socializing with the opportunity to engage with our event sponsors. The program will begin at 6:15 when Jackie Henry will introduce us to the resources available through the CF Foundation Compass program. After a short break, you can join one of the four discussion groups we have planned:
- Dealing with the emotions and stress of CF
- Managing the transition from adolescent to adult
- Preparing for transplant and other mindful choices
- Raising a child with CF
