This is Kiersten from GlobalCastMD, I work with Todd and Dr. Von Allmen. We have spoken before. In response to your request for videos explaining being born unable to to swallow. Here is a YouTube link to a great video our team made last year, it is “Esophageal Atresia in Brief: Presentation, Workup, Diagnosis, and Treatment” and we think it would work well for your audience. We will hopefully have another to share with you in the not too distant future.
Please let us know how else we can support the work you do,
