A few notes from the latest CFRI conference in California

Screen Shot 2015-08-13 at 8.43.51 AMLast week the annual CFRI conference was held in Redwood City California. For those of you who are not familiar with CFRI, it’s a terrific organisation that funds cystic fibrosis research, provides educational and personal support, and spreads awareness of cystic fibrosis.

Their website hosts a bunch of terrific content from research paper, presentations and key learnings to events and links with other key CF networks. It’s well worth your while getting on there and having a look. They also held a pediatric conference earlier in the year which had some incredible content specifically related to pediatrics. Do yourself a favour and get onto that content when you have a moment, its positive, uplifting but really informative. You can find that here

About 200 people went, a combination of speakers that included CF doctors and program directors, a physiotherapist, a social worker, an infection control expert and CF nurse / clinic co-ordinator who has devoted her life to CF; plus about 150 CF parents.

I took a heap of notes so that I could share the content with you all. You can download my notes here.

Please keep in mind that there was a mountain of info so I’ve done my best to try and record / remember as much as I could in each session but there may be some things missing. There’s a bit more to put down on paper but this is the majority of the sessions as I remember them.

If you have any questions please give me a shout at jen@ecooutdoor.com.au
