Emory Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program

Over the past few decades, the life expectency of patients with cystic fibrosis has increased dramatically. As patients with CF become adults, new issues and challenges in their care become present that require expertise of adult-trained sub-specialists.

Some of these include:

  • Diabetes and its complications
  • Osteoporosis and risk of fractures
  • Fertility and family planning
  • Health insurance and employment issues
  • Lung transplantation

The Emory Adult CF Program follows evidenced based practice, and is a CF Foundation accredited care center. Recently, our program's adherence to CFF guidelines was ranked among the best in the nation. We are also proud to be a member of the CF Foundation Therapeutics Development Center Network giving our patients access to the most up to date research trials in CF.
