As Marie said at last year's board meeting, "You know doc, some people bring wine to dinner..." Dr. Seward, the only doctor with a private practice devoted to patients with Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS), serves on the HPS Board of Directors and once again brought flu shots for everyone. I was so glad as I had forgotten to ask to get mine at my last doctor appointment. Here Carmen is about to get her shot.
Flu shots are important for those with HPS. The last thing any of us need is something that could generate an infection in our lungs.
