The Cystic Fibrosis Services Pharmacy launched an exciting partnership with drugstore.com that expands its current offerings to include a full-range of over-the-counter products. Through this partnership, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will receive a contribution equal to 10 percent of the sales generated through the new online store, which can be accessed at www.cfservicespharmacy.com/over_the_counter/. Customers with CF can purchase all of their prescription medications from the CF Services Pharmacy Web site and then go to the new co-branded over-the-counter store to conveniently purchase items for personal care, health and beauty needs. Please tell your friends and families to visit and make purchases at the over-the-counter store to support the Foundation’s mission.
Care Center Data Now Available Online
Health outcomes data for the CF Foundation’s network of accredited care centers is now available online at www.cff.org/LivingWithCF/CareCenterNetwork/. The data shows how well patients as a whole are doing at each center, and how the outcomes compare both to national averages and to national goals set by medical experts.
The Foundation is sharing this information as a way to further improve cystic fibrosis care, and to strengthen relationships between care centers and people with CF and their families.
