Doctor in the House: Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. In conjunction with International Day of Disabled Persons on 3 December, we highlight one rare disease that doesn't get enough attention: Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). 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.
