DD SIG Episode 44: Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Kyle Reedy

In this first installment of our series on rare neurologic diseases, host Jeff Schmidt talks with Kyle Reedy about Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). Kyle discusses the etiology and clinical presentation of this disease, as well as best practices for treating patients living with this rare neuromuscular disease, in light of medical advances that have improved patient prognosis. From using SMA-specific outcome measures to advocate for patients to insurance companies, to designing comprehensive and tailored interventions to optimize function and mobility long term, Kyle delves into the research and interdisciplinary best practices for management of patients with SMA.
