Ask The Expert LIVE! with Dr. Steven Cannon, MD, PhD.

In this FREE webinar, Dr. Steven Cannon will answer your questions LIVE on air. From understanding the different types of PP and how to get a genetic test, to what foods to eat or avoid and how to best control your symptoms, you can ask him anything about Periodic Paralysis you want!

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to ask your own personal questions regarding PP. To make this event valuable for all, we ask that you prepare your questions in advance and keep your time to less than 1 minute so everyone who has questions will have a chance to speak.

Dr. Steven Cannon is one of the leading researchers of periodic paralysis today. A neurologist, he has been in practice for over twenty years at places such as Johns Hopkins and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He is the Chair of Physiology at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. He has won a long list of awards for his research and has co-authored many publications in medical journals.

Dr. Cannon has done many hours of painstaking work in his lab at UCLA to make progress with periodic paralysis research. He gets down to the cellular level, focusing his studies on ion channels, which are part of muscle cells. His goal is to learn more about what causes periodic paralysis and how to treat it — and he has to take into consideration the many different types of periodic paralysis. It’s not easy work, to say the least.
