September MITO Meeting: "Mitochondria - the Big Picture"

Listen to the recording of this meeting 

September kicks off an exciting month for the mitochondrial disease community.  International Mitochondrial Disease Awareness week (September 21-28) inspires many to renew their commitment to actively raise awareness and support for the many adults and children who are affected by mitochondrial disease.
