Leading Geneticist Dr. Cristina Skrypnyk Joins Chromodiversity Foundation as Bahrain Brand Ambassador

💡 “Early diagnosis results in better futures! With an estimated 15 million people in the Arab world with issues linked to DNA, not only is is urgent to shift from ‘one size fits all’ to ‘one size fits only one’ healthcare, with earlier, faster, more efficient treatments. We also need to take into account human complexity, including lifestyle, nutrition, work, environment and access to resources.”

She is the initiator and leader of the National Rare Diseases Campaign in Bahrain and the chair for CareForRare Support group aimed to increase awareness for rare disorders and promote acceptance, tolerance and community inclusion. She focuses on building bridges between academic sectors, health sectors and society, and is a regular speaker at professional events.
