This news story reports on a patient involved in the new NIH undiagnosed diseases program, run by NHGRI's William Gahl. "Since the undiagnosed disease program was launched last summer, roughly 1,500 people have contacted Gahl or his staff, and more than 500 of them have submitted their medical records for consideration," the article says. "For months now, Gahl has expected this stream of applications to taper off. Yet four or five more applications arrive in the mail every day." The story follows the patient, Summer Stiers, and her experience with the new program.
