The 30th Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference will be held October 27-29, 2016 Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The NACFC serves as a collaborative forum to advance research for the treatment and cure of CF, and is an ideal opportunity to receive state-of-the-art continuing medical education and learn about the latest products and services in CF care. The educational elements of the meeting program are targeted to physicians, nurses, research scientists, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, nutritionists, social workers, and pharmacists to share the latest research and advances in CF. The meeting is held over three days with more than 60 concurrent sessions.
The content and faculty of the scientific program of educational sessions and approval of arrangements for hosted functions are the sole responsibility of the CF Foundation, the NACFC Program Planning Committee and the accredited provider.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. We fund more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.
We are a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. Our focus is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure.
The Foundation's drug development model has been recognized by Harvard Business School and by publications such as Forbes, The New Yorker, and Bloomberg Businessweek.
Based in Bethesda, Md., the Foundation funds and accredits a national care center network that has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of care for a chronic disease.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is one of the most efficient organizations of its kind and is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance.
