VCU Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program

The VCU Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Program is dedicated to providing the very best care and disease management to all of the patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) in Virginia and the bordering areas.  In addition to our Adult Program, VCU has a thriving Pediatric CF Program. CF patients usually transition to the Adult Program between the ages of 18-21 years.

Together, the Adult and Pediatric Programs are an accredited Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Core Care Center.

We are a multi-disciplinary team of a doctor, nurse, dietitian, respiratory therapist, social worker, physical therapist, pharmacist and research coordinator working together to fully meet any and all needs of our patients and families. We also have access to other specialists when special cases call for them.

Director's Message

I was attracted to treating patients with Cystic Fibrosis when I read about it in the Robbins textbook of Pathology during Medical School. The discovery of the CFTR mutation in 1989 opened avenues for new research and treatments. This enthusiasm led me to present a Noon Conference on Cystic Fibrosis, a disease that was not foremost in the minds of my fellow Internal Medicine residents.
