CFFC Education Day 2022

August 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

CFFC presents Education Day 2022: “Pursuing Mental Wellness.” The mental stresses created by life with CF require the same level of attention devoted to the physical challenges. Building on the success of last year’s program, will be presented through Zoom Webinar. Click here to register.

Our program will address two aspects of the emotional side of CF.

“It’s okay to ask for help” will connect you with the experiences of members of the CF community. As with all things CF, circumstances vary across the community but the common thread is building the confidence to seek assistance.

Because circumstances vary, there is no one solution that is right for everyone. “Where do I find the help I need” will offer some alternatives that can be matched to your individual needs.

The program will be presented by two panels sharing their experience and responding to questions from the audience. Here’s the event agenda:

6:15 PM: Webinar open for login
6:30 PM: Welcome and introductions
6:35 PM: It’s okay to ask for help. All of our panelists are adults living with CF:
– Chris Kvam
– Lauren Shea-Warner
– Leisha Cuddihy
7:30 PM: Messages from our sponsors
8:00 PM: Introductions
8:05 PM: Where do I find the help I need. Our panelists offer alternate perpsectives on getting help:

Audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions and comments during the program using the webinar Q&A feature.
