Nazarian Raising CDG Awareness

(Sacramento) – With the passage of Assembly Concurrent Resolution 61, Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian (D-West Toluca Lake) and the State Assembly declared May 16, 2017 as Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG) Awareness Day." CDG is the umbrella term for a rapidly expanding group of rare genetic, metabolic disorders caused by defects in the body’s complex biochemical process of glycosylation. “Although not as widespread nor widely understood as other disorders and illnesses, CDG has nonetheless affected many American individuals and their families,” said Assemblymember Nazarian. “And until a cure is found, the responsibility of supporting efforts to provide treatment for those living with any one of these myriad, varying disorders remains of utmost importance.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
