While we are gaining momentum with awareness campaigns during MG Awareness Month in June and the current Art with Heart auction, we also endeavour to raise awareness among the medical community, particularly health professionals who don’t know much about MG.
Earlier this year MGNSW worked with medical education provider Healthed to produce a podcast interview with one of our Neurologists specialising in neuroimmunology including Myasthenia Gravis. This podcast helps to educate healthcare professionals about our rare disease and to create conversation. Conversation is information, and information is awareness!
The 45-minute interview with Neurologist Dr Fiona Chan and Dr David Lim, GP and Medical Educator, covers issues such as the increasing diagnoses of MG, symptoms, how to test for MG, and referral and treatment goals. It was shared with Healthed’s network of health professionals in Australia and has already had nearly 750 downloads.
We are pleased to be able to share this podcast with you directly via our MGNSW website, so please check it out if you haven’t already done so: INTERVIEW WITH DR. FIONA CHAN
Thank you again to Dr Fiona Chan for her time and for sharing her valuable knowledge, and to the team at Healthed for making this podcast happen.
