Lily Nedda Dastmalchi, DO, a first-year cardiology fellow at Temple University Hospital, contributed an article to ABC News about NBA player Jared Butler’s advocacy for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the most common genetically inherited heart disease. The condition causes heart muscle to become too thick, which could lead to arrhythmias, heart failure, stroke or death. Butler and his mother were diagnosed with the condition a few years ago and have launched the “Could it be HCM?” campaign to help raise awareness. Yahoo! News picked up the ABC News story.
