Minnesotans Honored at North American CF Conference

November 4, 2009

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation recognized volunteers from the Minnesota Chapter at the 23rd Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference in Minneapolis, Minn.

The 30 guests enjoyed a warm reception with Foundation leaders before attending the opening session at the conference.

Before an audience of more than 3,500 CF scientists, doctors and caregivers, Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., president and CEO of the CF Foundation, praised the chapter as “a model for excellence that continues to lead the way as a proactive, dedicated group of volunteers who are pioneering the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s mission.”

The group attended special sessions throughout the conference to learn more about CF research, quality improvement and care.

Janie Norby, whose nine-year-old son Max has CF, says the CF Foundation gives her confidence in a cure for CF. “I’m looking forward to the day when Max can wake up and be free from this disease.”
