Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common genetic (inherited) diseases in America. It is also one of the most serious. It mainly affects the lungs and the digestive systems in the body, causing breathing problems and problems digesting foods. It is a chronic disease that currently has no cure.

The CF Center at Stanford is an integrated disease management program that follows patients from
diagnosis through adulthood.

With the current longer life expectancy for patients with Cystic Fibrosis, our clinic population includes patients of all ages. More than half the patients followed by the Stanford CF Center are adults aged 18 years or older.

What sparked your interest in focusing on CF, as a specialty?

        I am dedicated to caring for children with chronic disease and special needs, with the overarching goal to minimize health disparities. Cystic fibrosis sparked my interests specifically because it was an opportunity to make a great difference in the lives of patients with this disease.  The diagnosis of cystic fibrosis has a great impact on a patient's life and family, affecting both quality of life and overall life span.  Great advances in treatment and care have resulted in improved health outcomes for patients of cystic fibrosis.  I care for patients with cystic fibrosis because there is a true chance to help improve their lives.  I conduct clinical epidemiology research in cystic fibrosis to help identify disparities in health outcomes in various subgroups with cystic fibrosis.  My clinical work exists in tandem with my research to help discover ways to reduce health disparities.
