Today’s guest on the FUMS Podcast is Dr. Karin Hehenberger. After being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at a young age, Karin has since gone on to dedicate her life to helping others impacted by chronic disease.
She eventually created Lyfebulb, an innovative patient-empowerment platform whose mission is to reduce the burden of chronic disease through the power of the patient - an idea that all of us in the FUMS nation can get behind!
Most excitingly, Karin talks about the forthcoming MS Innovation Challenge, which looks to support patient entrepreneurs whose companies are developing solutions which address needs currently unmet in MS.
Topics covered include: Karin's life with chronic disease and her decision to go into medicine Lyfeulb's mission and aims The partnership between Lyfebulb and pharmaceutical company Celegen which led to the MS Innovation Challenge- and how YOU could get involved! … and so much more!
