The Global Genes Project
December 10, 2012
Hope... It's in our Genes.
Joining The Balancing Act is Nicole Boice, founder of the Global Genes Project, a rare and genetic disease patient advocacy group, here to talk about how millions of Americans—one in ten—fall through the cracks of medical treatment because there is so little awareness or research funding the treatment of their conditions. There are seven thousand diseases with no treatment or cures, and awareness is needed to build a voice for those suffering from rare diseases and disorders with little to no support.
Don’t move! The Balancing Act is back with a new Behind the Mystery segment and an inside look at a Broadway sensation.
We're discussing Alport syndrome, a rare, genetic, and chronic kidney condition characterized by declining kidney function which can lead to end-stage kidney disease.
