In this webinar, Jill Viles, an Iowa mother with no clinical training, shares her story of how she self-diagnosed her rare condition, a muscle-wasting disease caused by a mutation in the LMNA gene. She will also discuss how she discovered that a mutation in the same gene is the underlying cause for the excess muscle phenotype exhibited by Canadian Olympic hurdler Priscilla Lopes-Schliep.
