Each September we highlight the work that is done and the awareness of Mitochondrial Disease. This year, Mitochondrial Disease Awareness falls on September 17th through the 23rd. In an effort to spread awareness across the Texas Medical Center, the TMC Pulse highlighted our very own Mary Kay Koenig, MD and the efforts that she and her team do to research and combat mitochondrial disease. Even though Dr. Koenig and her team have not found a way to cure these diseases, she has been able to slow down the progress and create a better quality of life for the kids and their families.
