Episode 6: Marina Sutter

This week, Dr. Orla Galvin welcomes Marina Sutter, Interim Chair of the Retina International Youth Council to our latest episode of the In-Focus podcast series.

At 12 years old, Marina was diagnosed with an inherited retinal disease (IRD) called Stargardt Disease. Although a challenging time, Marina remembers fondly the incredible support she received from her teachers and parents, who supported and empowered her throughout her journey. However, through Marina’s involvement and experience in the retina community, she understands that many young people have not had similarly empowering figures in their lives.

As Interim Chair of the Retina International Retina Youth Council, Marina is inspired to provide comprehensive resources and social supports for young people living with retinal degenerations worldwide, creating opportunities for them to share experiences, meet other young people in similar circumstances and realise they are part of a global community.
