Gunnar Esiason believes cystic fibrosis drug development is in its golden age, and that’s good news for people like him. Gunnar was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) at age two, and since then, he’s relied on an intensive treatment regimen to manage his symptoms. On today’s episode, Gunnar and I talk about why he feels a sense of promise around CF research, how he copes with his condition using humor and transparency, and his two jobs, both of which he loves: CF advocacy and coaching ice hockey.
