The CFRD team includes physician Toni Moran, diabetes nurse educator Anne Kogler, and diabetes dietitian Carol Brunzell. Adding diabetes cares onto an already busy routine of chronic illness management is difficult. We work with individuals with CF and their families to help them through this process in order to achieve good health. While we are available 24/7 to provide diabetes support, our goal is to work with individuals and families to give them the tools they need to be able to self-manage diabetes and to work diabetes care into their normal routine and lifestyle. We care for both children and adults with CFRD. We have been very involved nationally with the CF Foundation, providing leadership for national and international treatment guidelines. We have been leaders in CFRD research since the late 1980’s and are recognized as the national benchmark center for CFRD management.


Professor Antoinette Moran, M.D. is Division Chief of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at the University of Minnesota. She has been taking care of patients with cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) since 1987. Her research in CFRD resulted in her being named the first annual recipient of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Richard C. Talamo Distinguished Clinical Achievement Award, for “research contributions that have had significant influence on the course of the disease". She recently co-chaired a national consensus conference on guidelines for the management of CFRD, sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the American Diabetes Association and the Pediatric Endocrine Society.
