We announced models to two labs with RDMM and Hasan, thank you! https://www.syngapresearchfund.org/post/syngap-research-fund-srf-announces-grants-to-dr-kurt-haas-and-dr-graziella-dicristo-in-partnership-with-canadas-rare-diseases-models-and-mechanisms-network-rdmmn

Thank you Julie for your help making mice, we are really having fun accelerating science.  Thank you JR, Hans and Marta for joining meetings with a company to talk about other options for SRF.  All costs $.

Global: Victoria is at Dravet in Spain with Katrien from the Netherlands.  How cool is that?  Denmark is next week.

BTW, remember episode 48 (google #S10e48) I got another call, the ICD-10 debacle continues.  We are so lucky to have this code, USE IT.  I had two meetings this week looking at health economics, this code is showing up and it is going to help us understand cost and find doctors.  USE THE CODE… F78.A1

Probably Genetic, our partnership there continues and good things are coming, over 1,000 people have taken that survey and we are going to reach out to 40 people who we think need to pursue testing… PUSH OUT THIS LINK: https://syngap.fund/maybe

Advice time:

  1. Build #TeamYourKid
    1. Our kids don’t get simpler or smaller
    2. Babysitters and community members who know them now are their advocates later
  2. Double up on Neuros (unless you being seen by rockstars who are close)
    1. Everyone needs a good local neuro, few have them, so keep that relationship, both for higher quality care and for someone close in emergencies.
    2. If you have the time and the insurance, it's also a good idea to also be seen by a regional medical center. This is for three reasons
      1. Second opinions never hurt
      2. The regional folks will see more patients and are in an academic setting, so they are more likely to see patterns and publish case studies.
      3. When it's clinical trial time, companies won't call local doctors, they will call regional medical centers, you want to be on their list.
