In this episode Dr. Daniel Correa talks with jazz musician John Stein about the symptoms he experienced that led to hospitalization and a myasthenia gravis diagnosis. John also shares his recovery and rehab journey after his hospitalization. Next, Dr. Correa sits down with Dr. Carolina Barnett-Tapia, neurologist and associate professor of neurology at the Institute of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation at the University of Toronto. Dr. Barnett-Tapia explains what myasthenia gravis is and why it may present differently in each person, as well as important considerations for caregivers when someone is newly diagnosed with the condition. 

A special thank you to John Stein for permission to feature the title track “No Goodbyes” from his upcoming album release in this week’s episode. Available on Spotify and Apple Music.
