In 2009, infectious disease physician and University of South Florida professor, Dr. Sandra Gompf and her husband lost their son Philip to the parasite , Naegleria fowleri. In this 2015 interview, Dr Gompf joined me to discuss the amoeba, Philip’s infection, awareness campaigns she is involved in, new developments at the time in diagnostics and treatment and some prevention advise for other parents.

Check out their website for a plethora of great information on Naegleria fowleri and to donate to the USF Philip T. Gompf Memorial Fund
