Next week kicks off the 29th annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference (NACFC), which will feature live-streamed presentations from leaders in cystic fibrosis research and care.
Starting on Wednesday, Oct. 7, you can watch select sessions from NACFC. Highlights include the conference's three plenaries, which will cover personalized medicine; ongoing and upcoming CF clinical trials; and new guidelines for the screening of depression and anxiety in individuals with CF.
Recently, we caught up with the first plenary speaker, John P. Clancy, M.D., to talk about the next steps in personalized medicine, which would allow clinicians to better tailor treatment to the individual with CF. Check out the short video below.
The Foundation will also broadcast a session specifically for people with cystic fibrosis and their families: a "one-on-one” conversation between an adult with CF and Dr. Anna Georgiopoulos. In this session designed specifically for people with CF and their families, the two will discuss the importance of screening for and treating depression and anxiety as part of the standard of CF care.
Register online today. The “Broadcast Schedule” tab houses descriptions of all three plenaries.
