BioMarin presents a virtual educational program focused on skeletal dysplasia red flag symptoms and confirmatory genetic testing. The Program will take place October 29, 2020 at 11:30 am EST.

Many patients are diagnosed with skeletal dysplasias without confirmatory testing. Delayed or incomplete diagnoses can result in less-than-optimal patient outcomes, including potential surgical risks. Join us to learn the “red flag” signs and symptoms to watch for, and how genetic testing can create better opportunities for disease-specific care.

 Dr. Cathleen Raggio has been a practicing orthopedic surgeon for over 30 years and is the Orthopedic Director of the Kathryn O. and Alan C. Greenberg Center for Skeletal Dysplasias at the Hospital for Special Surgery. She has been involved in many clinical trials and is associated with several societies, including the Orthopedic Research Society, the Scoliosis Research Society, Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, and the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation. Her contributions extend beyond her practice and research, and she has been recognized with several awards that appreciate her role in raising awareness of skeletal dysplasia.
