Episode 4: Understanding Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis used to be considered a childhood terminal disease, but with research and improved treatments, the future continues to get brighter for those with CF. This month, Assistant Professor Sarah Allgood joins the podcast to discuss cystic fibrosis causes, treatment, how people manage symptoms, and the future of CF care.

Dr. Allgood is a researcher who focuses on the role of pain and other symptoms in clinical outcomes among individuals with cystic fibrosis. Her long-term research goals include the development of interventions to help manage symptoms, especially in those with advanced lung disease.
