We are thrilled to share our CF Senior Saturday Meet & Greet program is a recipient of a 2023 Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Impact Grant!
This July, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) announced the recipients of its eighth annual Impact Grants, a program which provides funding to individuals and nonprofit organizations within the cystic fibrosis community who are leading projects to support people living with or impacted by the disease.
“This year’s Impact Grants focus on connection,” said Sue Sullivan, RN, vice president and head of community partnerships at the CF Foundation. “... these programs provide opportunities for people in the CF community to share, learn, support, and thrive. These awards reflect the Foundation’s commitment to supporting people in the CF community no matter where they are on their journey.”
As one of seven 2023 CFF Impact Grant recipients, CF Senior Saturday Meet and Greet is a virtual meeting space developed by Kristina Robinson — an adult with CF — for people with CF age 40+ to connect, exchange experiences, and access age-specific resources, encouraging them to become leaders in their communities, promote positive aging, and help inform policies and programs that meet the needs of older adults with CF.
