Managing director of Synergy Vision Ffyona Dawber has been appointed to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s board of trustees.

Her wealth of experience in healthcare stems from running a successful medical communications agency, a decade of working in the pharmaceutical industry, and working with patients directly as a nurse. Commenting on her appointment, Dawber says:

“I feel strongly that everyone should have access to understandable information about their condition and the medications they are taking. I have both friends and family living with cystic fibrosis, each of whom have inspired me to raise awareness about the real-life impact of the condition. “I believe it is a very exciting time right now – CF research is a huge focus for both academia and the pharmaceutical industry. It feels like we are starting to turn a corner in identifying long-awaited treatments.”
