As we deal with the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the isolation typical experienced by people living with CF is heightened. Two organizations have developed virtual gatherings to connect the CF community with each other – and with relevant information.
Cystic Fibrosis Research, Inc. (CFRI) is offering a weekly COVID-19 support group on Thursdays (beginning 3/26/2020) to help the CF community cope. See details in their flyer CFRI COVID 19 support group. The group will be offered on Zoom and facilitated by Liza Sher, MD, a psychiatrist at Stanford with expertise in CF and lung transplant.
