Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
We have received many phone calls about the Coronavirus. Although we ask all people with CF to wear a mask when entering the clinic or hospital, there is no need to wear a mask in the community and we are not recommending the N-95 masks. We are following recommendations from the CF Foundation.
The University of Wisconsin Cystic Fibrosis Center is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care to patients with cystic fibrosis (CF).
In addition to providing patient care, we are involved in teaching health care professionals about cystic fibrosis and research to provide better means of diagnosis and treatment.
Our care center is one of more than 115 care centers across the country accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, meaning both the adult and pediatric physicians in our center have specialty training in pulmonology. In addition to three years of training in general pediatrics or internal medicine, our physicians have an additional three years of training in lung disease.
The National Institutes of Health has cited our network as a model of effective and efficient health care for a chronic disease.
The Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Program is in the midst of a quality improvement project. Learn more about the project (pdf)
