Description of project: The purpose of this research study was to determine if fluorescent light alters the total serum vitamin D 25-OH level among adult patients diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.

Why you chose this project: There are a few clinicians who believe tubing used in the collection of vitamin D 25-OH must be protected from light.
