All babies born in New Hampshire are now required to have a newborn cystic fibrosis screening test.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Cystic Fibrosis Program is New Hampshire's most comprehensive CF treatment center. Our mission is to provide compassionate, responsive, collaborative care for people and their families affected by CF.
We see patients at DHMC in Lebanon and at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Manchester. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Manchester hosts clinics every month for existing cystic fibrosis patients. Both sites offer a variety of services, including:
- Diagnostic testing
- Patient evaluation and monitoring
- Respiratory therapy
- Nutrition counseling and evaluation
- Psychosocial services
The CF Patient & Family Advisory & Advocacy Committee is made up of CF patients and family members of people with CF. The group seeks to enhance both the medical care of CF patients and their quality of life.
