Sorry you missed the live event V1crew. What did you learn from the archived video that you may not have already known?

I have already met with Mike twice and will be seeing him again in a couple weeks. That being said I think that he pretty much covered it. Hit all the pertinent points for those who haven't gone through evaluation. In particular the importance of your nurse coordinator. I am sure I drive mine nuts with all my questions, (i tend to worry a lot) But she handles it well. As far as I am concerned the care I get in Jacksonville is nonpareil.

Great feedback v1crew. @audreylaine I hope you'll let the transplant team know, especially Michael Womack about his video chat.
