Cystic Fibrosis Foundation names Penn State Hershey an Outstanding Partner

The Penn State Hershey Cystic Fibrosis Center has been presented with the Outstanding Partner Award by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation or CFF. The center was one of just three nationwide to receive the award. Penn State Hershey was recognized by CFF in the small market size category. The center provides inpatient and outpatient services for infants, children and adults with severe and chronic respiratory problems.

Penn State Hershey was nominated for the award by Adrienne Mitford, executive director of CFF’s Central PA Chapter, which covers 22 counties. The award was presented recently at the North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference. Chuck Kibler, president of the board of directors of CFF’s Central PA Chapter, recently visited with the Penn State Hershey Cystic Fibrosis Center team to congratulate them in-person.

The Outstanding Partner Award recognizes programs for supporting CFF and its mission in many ways. They include distributing information about the foundation to families of cystic fibrosis patients, assisting with fundraising and the securing of sponsorships, and encouraging staff and families to participate in CFF chapter events.
