At Vertex, we have an uncompromising commitment to patients – they are simply at the center of everything we do.

“When I first joined Vertex the people that spoke to me meaningfully about cystic fibrosis in a way that I could truly understand and connect with were the parents of children with the disease and the patient advocacy groups, who I meet with frequently,” says Rebecca Hunt, Vice President of Patient and Community Engagement at Vertex. “They help us deeply understand both the challenges of living day-to-day with cystic fibrosis and the hopes and aspirations for people living with cystic fibrosis in their countries.”

Listen to Rebecca share more about our engagement with the cystic fibrosis community and how they are driving our commitment to people living with the disease.
