Approximately twice per year (typically in the spring and fall), Dr. Elizabeth Tullis or Dr. Anne Stephenson fly to Thunder Bay to see patients in the Thunder Bay region.
The clinic is located in the outpatient clinic area of Thunder Bay Regional Hospital. Colleen Morrow, a local nurse practitioner, sets up appointments, coordinates the clinic, and organizes tests for the CF clinic. In addition to in-person satellite clinics, telemedicine clinic visits are scheduled as needed throughout the year. Although there is no formal local CF clinic in Thunder Bay, Dr. B. Biman, a local adult Respirologist, will often see our CF patients if needed in between satellite clinics to ensure they remain well. Adults with CF followed in Thunder Bay can get their medications shipped to them from the Toronto Adult CF Clinic.
