To help CF Care teams manage responses to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosted a webinar on March 12, 2020 with Dr. Lisa Saiman. Dr. Saiman discussed how people with CF and their families can protect their health, including distance learning and remote work, telehealth and phone check-ins for well clinic visits, and how care teams can protect themselves when treating patients who are suspected of having or have been confirmed to have COVID-19.
Dr. Saiman is a Professor of Pediatrics at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. For more than 25 years, Dr. Saiman’s primary research and clinical interest includes infection prevention and control for people with CF.
