Acknowledgments

I acknowledge the support of the Genentech Foundation for Growth and Development without whose sponsorship the conference and this book could not have been completed. The Board of Directors of the Genentech Foundation including the Foundation leadership of Robert Blizzard, Foundation president and director, and members including Ann E. Johanson, Kim Amer, Raymond Hintz, Richard Fine, Thaddeus Kelly, John Curd, and James Strain facilitated the planning and conduct of the conference. Special thanks are owed to Juanita Bishop, assistant treasurer and office manager of the Genentech Foundation, who provided her usual excellent administrative support for this project.

The conference and this book were clearly facilitated by students in the graduate training program in pediatric psychology at Case Western Reserve University. Special thanks to Kristin Riekert, who took a leadership role in planning and conducting this project from beginning to end. In addition, Natalie Walders, Erika Burgess, Astrida Seja Kaugars, Chantelle Nobile, and Rachel Levi all provided important assistance in making the conference a success. Preparation of this volume was also supported in part by NIH HL 47604 Trial of Family Intervention in Cystic Fibrosis. The efforts of Elisabeth Rogers, who worked hard to process and organize the information in this book, are gratefully acknowledged. Finally, a debt is owed to the conference participants and chapter authors who have given the field much food for thought in this volume. This work is theirs.
