  • Advisory Council visitors are welcome; however, attendees must respect the CF Center at Stanford cross infection guidelines. Please do not attend if you have an active viral infection or any other contagious condition. If you have CF, keep three feet between yourself and others who have CF. Avoid shaking hands with others. Additionally, individuals with CF who have ever had a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) or who have cultured Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) within the past two years, or who are currently culturing a bacterium resistant to all antibiotics (pan resistant) may not attend our sessions in person due to the cross-infection risks to others with CF. If you would like to attend via teleconferencing, please contact Erika Harrington (the current Advisory Council secretary). She will let you know how you can participate.  (Web conferencing/Skype not yet available.)

  1. The council asked some of the CF clinic staff how the Return Patient Form was being accepted from their perspective. Positive remarks were made from the staff.

  • The council discussed and came up with several questions and comments that Kriss and Erika will bring up at the ACFAC quarterly meeting with Dr. Weill. They will return to the next council meeting with the results.

  • The council talked about who should attend these quarterly meetings with Dr. Weill. The idea of having another CF clinic staff member attend as well was brought up. After a brief discussion it was voted upon and passed. Some of the council members still thought it was a good idea to ask Dr. Weill what his thoughts were about this. Kriss will send an e-mail to Dr. Weill to get his input.

  1. The council brainstormed some ideas to get better communication from the whole Stanford CF Adult population. Sending out another survey to Adult CF patients was brought up to aid in the communication between patients and CF staff as one possible way. Another suggestion was to have "A Picnic in the Park" Day for CF patients only.

  1. Norma Kipp announced her resignation from the ACFAC.
