Indulgence and Diagnosis
September 9, 2016
Dig into sweet treats and health mysteries!
Laura Kruse from Funky Chunky has some indulgent (and crunchy!) snacks to share with us. She has with her some of the most delicious popcorn we’ve ever seen! The sweetness doesn’t stop there. Stick around for a Quick Byte, where our own chef Ralph Pagano shows us how to prepare a quick, easy, and deliciously fruity Jel dessert with Bakol. Later, we delve into the mysteries of AL amyloidosis, a rare disease that is often not properly diagnosed. Isabelle, a patient with the disease, joins us to share her story, and Dr. Raymond Comenzo provides us with inside info on proper diagnosis and treatment.
Up next on The Balancing Act, World Lupus Day, foster care, and more.
