Each year, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) honors a select group of local young leaders for their strong commitment to bettering the lives of those with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system. In 2020, Dana Szymkowicz, PhD, a toxicologist in our North Little Rock office, joined a long line of CTEH employees in being named one of CFF’s Finest Young Professionals.

Over the last several months, Dana raised funds to help CFF meet its mission to cure cystic fibrosis through life-saving research and high-quality, specialized patient care. Due to COVID-19, the CTEH team wasn’t able to celebrate Dana in-person. However, we were proud to raise a toast in her honor at CFF’s virtual Taste of the Finest event in October.

Thank you, Dana and Christine Millner Gay, MBA, PMP, Direct of Quality Management and Little Rock Leadership Board Chair, for your continued efforts to help those battling CFF. For more information about how to support CFF, please visit cff.org.
