Fabry disease is a rare genetic disorder that can be passed down from parent to child. It runs in families, so several members of the same family often have it.

Fabry disease is a rare genetic disorder that can be passed down from parent to child. It runs in families, so several members of the same family often have it. While doctors once thought that only men could get Fabry disease, we now know this is not true. Women can get Fabry disease too. Please join subject matter expert and nephrologist, Eric Wallace, MD as he presents this professional webinar that will focus on Fabry disease and women.

  1. Discuss Fabry disease, with a specific focus on women.
  2. Address baseline evaluation and monitoring in females with Fabry disease.
  3. Address the need for increased genetic testing and the potential outcomes associated with it.

Dr. Wallace is a native of Alabama. He serves as the Director of Telemedicine at UAB, the director of UAB Home Dialysis Program and co-director of the UAB Fabry Disease Clinic. Since becoming faculty, his research has been focused on eliminating geographic and socioeconomic barriers which prevents patients from accessing specialized care.  Primarily, he has focused on telemedicine in the provision of care in home dialysis and rare diseases such as Fabry disease, a rare genetic disease. Due to his research, he was named to the American Society of Nephrology Kidney Health Initiative that is focused on furthering the use of technologies such as telemedicine and telemonitoring to improve the care of patients on home dialysis. Currently, the UAB eMedicine program under his leadership now is able to deliver direct-to-patient, ambulatory scheduled, and inpatient care across the state.  Inpatient telehealth programs include telestroke, teleICU, telenephrology, and tele-general neurology. Dr. Wallace is passionate about home dialysis and in 2020 was named as a Councilor to the International Society of Peritoneal Dialysis.
