Dr. Maggie Naguib works at Cairo Univeristy in Egypt and is a Professor of Pediatrics. She talks to Laura Bonnell in this podcast, along with Dr. Samya Nasr from the University of Michigan hospital. Nasr is the Director of the CF clinic and professor of pediatrics. Dr. Naguib shares her struggles as a doctor in Egypt who has helped diagnosed 1,000 people with cystic fibrosis. This is thanks to the help of Dr. Nasr who travels back to Egypt once a year. Dr. Nasr arranged for 4 sweat tests so that doctors there could start testing for the disease. Families were losing multiple children to the disease without knowing why, until testing began. Hear their challenges and success in this podcast.
