Statement from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on President Obama's Precision Medicine Initiative Event
| 1 min read

(Bethesda, Md.) -- “We are honored that President Obama discussed how our efforts to treat cystic fibrosis reveal the promise of precision medicine and excited that he is launching a national initiative to support this innovative approach.

While it is true that we have made amazing progress to treat this disease, the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. Our work will not be done until we find a cure and all people with CF have access to the lifesaving therapies and support they need to lead full, productive lives.”

Preston W. Campbell III, M.D., executive vice president for medical affairs, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
