Update from Tokyo, Japan

I just gave a lecture on Wolfram syndrome at the National Center for Child Health and Development, Tokyo, Japan. This is the largest children's hospital in Japan. I met with motivated doctors and researchers. I was surprised to find out that genetic testing for Wolfram is not covered by health insurance in Japan. We need to keep on raising awareness of Wolfram syndrome.
