The Patient Experience: Philip Bright

Posted by Valaree DonFrancesco

Today on NORDpod, Matthew Zachary welcomes Phillip Bright, a senior at The University of Kentucky diagnosed with Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) at a very young age and has lived an accelerated life facing this rare condition. HHT is a congenital dominant hereditary disorder in which some blood vessels do not develop properly. Phil subsequently lived with a small pulmonary arteriovenous malformation in my lung. As a rare disease patient, he decided to give back to the community and pursue a career in medicine. As of this taping, Phil was recently accepted to Medical School and is looking ahead to a lifetime of critical clinical research to improve the lives of patients like him. NORDpod is the official podcast of the National Organization for Rare Disorders. For more information, email [email protected] and visit
