CF at School

Children and young adults with cystic fibrosis (CF) go to school and college. They can be expected to and do take part in school activities, including sports and other extracurricular activities. It is important that teachers, students and parents work together as a team to help people with CF have the best school experience possible.

CF affects the lungs and lung infections are a common and persistent problem for people with CF. To help keep a student with CF healthy, it is important for everyone to practice good infection prevention and control (e.g., hand washing, covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing).
