We are super proud to have presented the story about the Amyloidosis Speakers Bureau at last week’s International Symposium on Amyloidosis (ISA) in Heidelberg, Germany.
Speakers Bureau News
The Amyloidosis Speakers Bureau (ASB) had a wonderful year in 2021, settling into a new normal of virtual presentations. We gave 61 presentations to 2,400 U.S. medical students and internal medicine residency programs. We invite you to read more about our exciting and trajectory-changing educational initiative.
In this special video, hear world-renowned expert Dr. Mathew S. Maurer and his patient John Basdavanos presenting to a group of medical students. Dr. Maurer provides a brief overview of Wild-Type Amyloidosis (ATTRwt), while John provides the patient perspective. Together, these insights offer a compelling story about battling a life threatening disease.
It’s been a wonderful year, closing our our second full school year since our launch. Since we began two years ago, we have made over 110 presentations to over 5,600 first/second year medical students. Feedback confirms that our patient speakers do a great job educating future doctors on the patient perspective of navigating a rare disease! We invited you to read more about what we’ve accomplished so far in 2021.
