My interview for another article for PBS Nova Next

I had an interview with a journalist for PBS Nova Next in regards to genetics and Brugada Syndrome. Possibly in the future, genetic defects can be fixed? Read here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/next/body/crispr-and-stem-cells-could-speed-studies-of-rare-diseases/

    Oh no! I just re-read your “invited” post and see that you declined their invitation.

    I totally get that response, especially with your busy family life. But what a huge honour to be invited! Loved your observation “….despite me trying to stay mostly anonymous, they have noticed me. I guess I’m more ‘visible’ than I thought!” You know it! You are THE Brugada Girl, so no wonder they noticed you!!

      It was dumb of me to think I can stay invisible with social media. Woops!

        Oh, not “dumb” at all! I think it was likely a huge shock for you to see how many Brugada patients responded to your blog so enthusiastically. You became the self-educated ‘voice’ of the Brugada patient, even though that wasn’t your original goal!

        And it was a darned good thing you did! 🙂

        Thanks for that Carolyn. I didn’t expect it at all.Sometimes I wish I didn’t start it because I’m such a private person and this got bigger than I expected. But I can’t turn back now because I feel the need to help others through it

    Another terrific article in prominent, mainstream media, Alicia!! Amazing what researchers are doing to solve this rare disease mystery…

    HEY! When are you off to Italy? Have a wonderful time at your Brugada conference.
    hugs
