An incredible group of professionals in collaboration with John Ritter's widow Amy Yasbek have launched the John Ritter Research Program. This is another huge step in creating an increased awareness of aortic disease, educating the public, and preventing unnecessary death from aortic dissection. The team is doing a tremendous amount of research on the genetic basis of aortic disease and always looking for patients for research. Their site http://www.johnritterresearchprogram.org/ is chock full of valuable medical information, and is a perfect compliment to the topics covered on Heartosaurus.com. Look for contributions on our site from their elite team of researchers and doctors.
