Robert talks of the achievement, “The film I shot with director Ed McGown featuring Dr Alastair Garfield and Kate McAllister about PWS just won at Sheffield. A fabulous night was had by all up here celebrating. I’m over the moon!!”
The film shows how the latest computing technology influences the lives of patients with Prader-Willi Syndrome – a rare genetic condition that causes near permanent hunger, leading in turn to chronic obesity. Dr Alastair Garfield and Kate McAllister MA explain how technology is helping scientists change the lives of sufferers for the better.
