Connecting Young Adults with Rare and Chronic Conditions
November 1, 2019
Seth Rotberg and Kristina Wolfe have each felt the isolation of entering adulthood in the shadow of rare and chronic disease. Rotberg, whose mother was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, had genetic testing as a college student that showed he too will develop the neurodegenerative condition. Wolfe has grown up with type 1 diabetes. The two founded Our Odyssey to help young adults connect, find social and emotional support, and help them improve their quality of life. We spoke to Rotberg and Wolfe about their own experiences, why they created Our Odyssey, and the unique psychosocial issues people with rare and chronic diseases face in transitioning to adulthood.rare diseasechronic disease
