Cystic fibrosis affects people of many different racial and ethnic backgrounds; however, for many years there has not been adequate recognition or representation of Black individuals and other people of color within the CF community. The CF Foundation is working to deepen its understanding of this issue by listening to Black members of the CF community, other people of color with CF, and leading researchers who are focused on health disparities.
If you are interested in helping to shape the Foundation's efforts to create an equitable and inclusive community for all people with CF, we encourage you to complete this interest form: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KGQB7K9
