Danielle Lowe Cipriani

Sr Mgr of Virtual Connections
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Danielle has been with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since 2009. As the first member and co-founder of the Community Partnerships team, Danielle spearheaded two first-of-their-kind groups for people living with CF to bring their ideas and experiences into all of the Foundation’s activities: the 12-person CF Adult Advisory Council and the 600+-member Community Voice. In addition, Danielle led the efforts to develop the peer-to-peer mentoring program for adults with CF and the Impact Grant program, which supports the unique talents and programs created by community members. Today Danielle leads the Foundation’s virtual events program, which hosts events by and for people with CF. Because people living with cystic fibrosis are not supposed to come within six feet of one another because of cross-infection risks, Danielle is now leading the Foundation’s innovative approaches to design and deliver virtual connection opportunities for people with CF and their families.
