Spaulding Council on Disability Awareness
Brown Bag Lunch Talk:
A Conversation About Partnering with
Patients on the Road to Acceptance
   

About The Speaker
Chris Anselmo is a 30-year old patient living with Miyoshi myopathy, an adult-onset form of muscular dystrophy. After spending many years in denial about the prognosis of his disease, Chris has found meaning in his struggle, and now writes and speaks regularly about his patient journey and his road to acceptance. As a patient, Chris regularly interacts with specialists such as neurologists, pulmonologists and physical therapists, and is a part of an international study monitoring his disease progression over time.  

Chris will share his story and thoughts around how healthcare professionals can partner with patients to help them when they have a chronic illness and to empower them to take charge of their circumstances, set goals for the future, and thrive with their given condition.

Chris is a 2016 graduate of the Boston College MBA program and currently works in the admissions office at the Carroll Graduate School of Management at Boston College.
