In January, The American Thoracic Society (ATS) held a webinar about the challenges facing CF families in low-income countries. Drs. Samya Nasr and Grace Paul were key participants in the webinar. Two doctors who have been featured on this podcast. This is where I first saw I Dr. Hector Gutierrez.
Dr. Gutierrez is the Raymond K. Lyrene Chair, Professor, and Director of the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Dr. Gutierrez is native to Chile, where he did medical school and pediatric residency. He did his subspecialty training at Peds Pulmonology UAB and has been at the CF Center since 2003.
Dr. Gutierrez has developed a robust training program for CF teams from resource-limited regions outside the US. He is currently the Co-chair of the CF Foundation’s Global Advisory Committee. We’re honored to have him join us today. He has so much knowledge of CF life around world, and we’re grateful that he shared his knowledge with us.
