Over 150,000 Americans live with spina bifida, a birth defect that mainly affects the spine and can cause neurogenic bladder or bowel. Sarah was born with spina bifida at the L4/L5 and L5/S1 levels, resulting in a neurogenic bladder and bowel. Sarah has been using the Peristeen® Transanal Irrigation System since 2015 and has recently started using the updated Peristeen® Plus system. She will share her journey through treatment techniques that ultimately led her to Peristeen Plus, along with her tips, advice, and best practices for using the system.

They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
