Dr. Bronya Keats is a pioneer geneticist at Louisiana
State University Medical School who has been studying
Friedreich's Ataxia for many years in the French/Acadian
population of southern Louisiana. Additionally Dr. Keats
studies genetic hearing loss and collaborates with the NIH
Institute studying deafness.
Dr. Keats would like to research FA patients suffering
from hearing loss. Her preliminary findings suggest that a
large number of FAers have difficulty hearing in noisy
environments. In order to study this problem, she needs
family and medical histories from affected individuals
describing the type of hearing problem that they have. She'd
be particularly interested in siblings who have FA and one
or both has a hearing problem.
Contact Dr. Keats if you would like to help in this
