Geri Landman’s Moonshot Mission to Cure One Rare Disease at a Time

Dr. Geri Landman is a pediatrician who recently founded a nonprofit, Moonshots for Unicorns, which is committed to curing curable single-gene disorders, like her daughter Lucy’s.

Listen in to hear more about Lucy, Moonshot’s mission, and about which digital health innovations Dr. Geri believes could have the most impact on rare disease research and treatment!
