163: Driven with Dr. Denise Wunderler
Denise Wunderler, DO, FAOASM is a board-certified Sport Medicine physician and team doctor for USA Volleyball who tells her daughter’s story and the cause that has made her more DRIVEN.
Sweet, healthy Vienna Carly Savino was only 2.8 years old when she fell asleep while watching TV at home in Holmdel, New Jersey, on 12 Nov 2017, and never woke up. Her death was categorized as SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood). SUDC is the category of death designated in kids 1-18 years old, when there’s no explanation after a thorough investigation. Even Vienna’s genetic studies did not reveal a cause. Shockingly, SUDC is scarcely known in the medical community or the general public. Denise and family are on a mission to change this!
Join me and my family on May 16 for Vienna’s Day of International SUDC Awareness!
