Caoimhe McKenna

I am currently a doctor working in Clinical Genetics.  In this role I have first-hand experience of working with patients and families who have rare diseases.  Through this work I gain some idea of the challenges faced by these patients, and their priorities.  As a doctor I also have some knowledge of how the health service works on the front-line, and potential ways to navigate this system.  I also have access to professional networks which may can support collaborative working for the benefit of rare disease patients.  I am also willing to use my knowledge and resources to educate others about rare disease.
