Anna was interviewed by BBC Radio 4's Inside Health presented Mark Porter about the ABC Huntington's case for the segment on genes and confidentiality
5th February 2019

Episode synopsis (from BBC Radio 4's website):

Genetics and confidentiality; a fascinating legal case where a woman is suing the hospital trust that looked after her father with Huntington's disease for not warning that she too could be affected. And a well established use of very low carb diets that isn't so well known - to treat complex childhood epilepsy. Plus cancer of the voice box and persistent sore throat. And should hairy arms be shaved for a hospital drip? This question has prompted a transatlantic spat when Sir Andy Murray posted a photograph after his recent hip operation.
