Acute Facial Palsy Podcast

Acute Facial Palsy Podcast

This is the link to a podcast I was interviewed for. It is designed to be helpful for people who’ve been newly diagnosed with facial palsy, but could also give information to those who have had it for a while. I’ve copied the time stamp in case you want to skip ahead to areas of particular interest. Have a listen!
