We are very fortunate to have with us today, two of this country’s leading metabolic specialists; Dr. Mark Korson and Dr. Darius Adams.  They have both dedicated their lives to helping our MITO Community and we can’t thank them enough.   It is no small feat considering mitochondrial disorders are by far some of the most challenging, complicated, and high needs disorders to manage.  They deserve the utmost respect for their continued commitment in the face of all the adversities that they too often face in order to help us.

Mark Korson MD Mark Korson graduated from the University Of Toronto School Of Medicine and completed his pediatric residency nearby at The Hospital for Sick Children.  He came to Boston to do a fellowship in genetics and metabolism at Children's Hospital.  Following that, he directed the Metabolism Clinic at Children's until 2000, transferring then to Tufts Medical Center's Floating Hospital for Children where he remained the Director of the Metabolism Service and an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Tufts University School of Medicine until 2014. Dr. Korson promotes an educational approach to address the growing crisis in metabolic health care due to the shortage of clinicians available to treat this community.  Between 2007 and 2011, Dr. Korson directed the  Metabolic Outreach Service, for which he traveled on a regular basis to five teaching hospitals in the Northeastern US where there is no on-site metabolic service.  The goal was to provide educational and consultative support so that non-metabolic clinicians could learn how to participate more in the diagnosis and management of patients with metabolic disease.  That same year, Dr. Korson also co-founded the  North American Metabolic Academy , an annual one-week intensive course about metabolic disease for genetic and metabolic trainees; to date, more than half of all American genetic trainees have enrolled in this course.  NAMA is sponsored by the Society for Inherited Metabolic Disorders.
In 2015, Dr. Korson co-founded the Genetic Metabolic Center for Education , a comprehensive, multi-modal approach for improving the level of care for children and adults with metabolic disease.  The components of the GMCE include a consultation and clinical support service, subspecialty-specific conferences, an interactive training/reference web site, a live patient speaker program and library of patient presentations, and development of symptom-based, practical brochures for distribution to clinicians.

Join us Friday December 7th, 2012 for an exciting teleconference with Dr. Mark Korson as we discuss what to do when a Mito patient is sick at home:

Presented by Mark Korson, MD
MitoAction Advisory Board, Chief of Metabolic Services at Tufts Floating Hospital for Children Boston, MA
Dr. Korson, a founding member of MitoAction, has years of experience with Mito patients and unfortunately sees plenty of "sick kids. His discussion today is to help Mito patients and parents of affected children to think about what to do if they (or their child) gets sick. Over the years Dr Korson believes he has learned much from his patients and their families about how they navigate through the health care system - sometimes with ease, other times with more difficulty.
...
In general, when Dr. Korson is called about a patient who is "ill", he suggests that the parents go to the PCP first and have the child assessed.
...
Symptom Guide MitoAction offers a comprehensive online Mito symptom guide for the management of all kinds of symptoms, written by Dr. Korson and Margaret Klehm RN.
...
Dr. Korson also has a fairly low threshold for the use of antibiotics and may use them earlier and more often to prevent infections from getting worse.
