Meet Our Cystic Fibrosis Team

At Cook Children's CF Clinic, the care team sees more than patients, we see people who become members of our Cook Children's family.

Headed by our nationally recognized board-certified pulmonologists, our care team includes, CF coordinators, nurses who coordinate routine care and sick visits, respiratory therapists who measure pulmonary function and teach airway clearance, dietitians who monitor nutritional status, social workers who assure the emotional health and well-being of you/your child and your family, and Child Life specialists who develop appropriate education about CF and managing care.
