Doctor in the House: Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour.

Edmund Lim, founder of a patient advocacy group We Care Journey and a parent of a child with SMA, joins us to share more about the needs and challenges faced by people living with SMA and other rare diseases.
