This week Dr. Daniel Correa speaks with Cory Lee, a travel blogger, accessibility advocate, and founder of the Curb Free Foundation, who was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) at two years old. Cory shares his experience of growing up using a wheelchair at an early age and how he became inspired to start a travel blog to document his perspective travelling the world as a wheelchair user. Next, Dr. Correa sits down with Dr. Leslie Delfiner, a pediatric neurologist at Montefiore Medical Center and associate professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, New York. Dr. Delfiner explains the different types of SMA, how to make an emergency preparedness plan for muscle and nerve conditions, and tips for transitioning into adulthood for people with chronic neurologic conditions.
