Dr. Melissa Russo

Dr. Melissa Russo is a maternal fetal-medicine specialist, clinical geneticist, and researcher in our VEDS community. In this episode, Melissa shares how she got involved, what she’s working on in research, what inspires her, and her personal experience losing a friend to VEDS.

Melissa is pursuing additional research collaborations with Dr. Bart Loeys in Europe, Dr. Shaine Morris in Texas, and Dr. Sherene Shalhub in Washington to better understand pregnancy outcomes for people with VEDS, and for people who have had children with VEDS who do not have VEDS themselves.
