This Alpha's Path to Action and Accountability

Karen Erickson's, Bio:plus

Karen is a lung-affected Alpha who resides in Newbury Park, California. Karen has been active in the Alpha-1 Community for four years.   She has ridden her bike under the Team Alpha-1 banner in bike treks throughout California and in the annual Cape Cod Bike Trek in Massachusetts bike ride. She created and produced t-shirts to create awareness for Alpha-1. She has been an Alpha-1 speaker at the American Thoracic Society and has spoken at Support Group meetings. She is a member of the Alpha-1 Association Los Angeles Support Group.  Karen says, “First and foremost, I will put myself to work to find a cure for Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. My intentions with the Alpha-1 Association will follow that goal. I am under the firm belief that the empowerment of our patient population through education, advocacy and support will lend itself to that end."
