We are overwhelmed with the positive feedback we received from the 2016 11th Australasian Cystic Fibrosis Conference in August. A wealth of information was shared by health professionals from Australia and around the world. Cystic Fibrosis Australia Ambassador, Nathan Charles opened the conference with a moving speech inspiring everyone to band together and continue to raise awareness awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.
2015 saw us have the ability to webcast several of the sessions. Below are the links to some of the sessions, with more being uploaded over the next few months as permissions become available and papers become published.
