I am an attorney in the Division of Investment Management at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C. However, because the SEC requires me to get preclearance of all writings relating to the SEC or securities law prior to publication, I do not blog on anything relating to my job.
I expect many of my posts to focus on health and medicine. I became interested in medical research while researching treatment options for my teenage daughter, who has heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, a genetic disease that causes very high LDL-cholesterol. In addition, I am a breast cancer survivor and may blog occasionally on issues related to breast cancer. I am a member of Healthy Skepticism and the Society for Participatory Medicine and a Friend of the National Physicians Alliance. In addition, I am a member/administrator of the Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) Discussion Group on Facebook(https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/47098836197/). You can contact me at mannm at comcast.net. Follow me on Twitter @MarilynMann. Comments without a valid email address will be deleted.
