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.
