Ciitizen – Take Control of Your Own Medical Records and Advance Research with Nasha Fitter

Nasha Fitter is the mother of three daughters, one of which was diagnosed with a rare disease called FOXG1. After her daughter’s diagnosis, she got to work and co-founded the FOXG1 Research Foundation. She’s dedicated to leading the research strategy and finding a cure for every child in the world with FOXG1 syndrome. She’s here to talk to us about her work as the Director of the Rare and Neurological Disease Division for Ciitizen, a technology company that enables fast and seamless access to patient data. In this episode, you’ll learn about the most innovative medical record platform that will be open and accessible to parents, caregivers, clinicians, academics, bio pharma and researchers.
