While cystic fibrosis is considered a pulmonary disease, attention to excellent nutrition and good growth is essential to optimal pulmonary function and extended survival. I consider my role in the management of children with cystic fibrosis to reduce pain and disability associated with gastrointestinal and liver disease in CF, and to offer aggressive interventions to improve nutrition in children unable to achieve normal growth. I am proud to be a member of a team of caregivers dedicated to both superior clinical care of children with CF, and to clinical research to improve survival in this disease.
