There are lots periods of stress in our lives. But there are two that are particularly demanding. And they’re both regarding children.
When you get pregnant, you’re very soon made aware of the wide range of things that can go wrong with the development of your baby. Finding out the results of medical tests on your child can relieve your stress, and save the life of your baby.
At the BioInnovation Center in New Orleans Dr Sunyoung Kim has developed one of these tests. Her company, Chosen Diagnostics, diagnoses a common and life threatening disease. Dr Kim joins Peter Ricchiuti for lunch on this episode of Out to Lunch.
Rebecca Norwood also joins Peter for lunch. Rebecca’s company, Little Travelers, relieves a whole other kind of stress: traveling with children. The startup company lets people traveling to New Orleans with little kids travel empty handed and rent all the paraphenalia they need when they get here.
