Half-time Highlights of 2012
We've been busy this year! Take a look at the highlights of MitoAction's programs so far this year...
"Living Well with Mitochondrial Disease", written by MitoAction's Executive Director, Mito mom and nurse Cristy Balcells, is the first comprehensive book published for patients and families. "Living Well" is not only a handbook, it is a companion to all who are affected by or care for someone with mitochondrial disease. Available on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com; published by Woodbine House.
Track daily symptoms, track medications in your Mito cocktail, record hydration and nutrition, search the comprehensive glossary on the go - all from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The new MitoAction App is the first app developed as a tool to help Mito patients and families better manage their symptoms. Available free on the iTunes App Store.
