UPMC Children’s Pulmonary Medicine Division Receives Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Outstanding Care Center Partnership Award

November 2, 2021

In October 2021, the Antonio J. and Janet Palumbo Cystic Fibrosis Center (CF Center) in the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh was recognized by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with a 2021 Outstanding Care Center Partnership Award.

The CF Center at UPMC Children’s is led by director Daniel J. Weiner, MD, FAAP, FCCP, ATSF

The award from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation recognizes care centers and teams that have collaborated with their local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation chapters to serve the needs of the greater cystic fibrosis community of patients, families, and communities. Recipients of the award are selected based on various criteria, including local collaboration efforts, engagement with local chapter programs and events, involvement of chapter staff in center-directed initiatives, and others.

“The CF Center care team at UPMC is so fortunate to have engaged partners at the Western PA Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. They have worked hand-in-hand with us over the years as we work together towards a cure for Cystic Fibrosis — as we say, "Until It Is Done," says Dr. Weiner.

The award will be presented during the 2021 North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference in November.

"I extend my congratulations and that of our Division and Hospital to our CF Center director Daniel Weiner, MD, and all of the dedicated team members for their ongoing exemplary care and devotion to our patients living and thriving with CF, and to their continuing collaboration with the local chapter and national Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,” says Juan C. Celedón, MD, DrPH, ATSF, division chief of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine at UPMC Children’s.
