Hi my name is Ric Logsdon and I would like to introduce myself as your AlphaNet Patient Services Coordinator.
I have lived in the Louisville, Kentucky area for most of my life. I was diagnosed with Alpha-1 in 2001 after the death of my father, but I had experienced symptoms since I was seven years old. I am the youngest of eight children; I am one of three ZZ alphas and have five MZ siblings.
After being diagnosed and given false information, I began to educate myself and other Alphas about living with AATD through sharing my story with the Kentucky support group and with area doctors.
I went to Capitol Hill to speak with our nation’s leaders about the important bills affecting Alpha-1 “Access to Care” issues.
Today, I continue to voice the positive message of living with Alpha-1 and the importance of early detection to American Lung Association meetings, local support group meetings and now, as an AlphaNet Coordinator.
I am also a pastor of a church in Louisville. One of my greatest joys in life is helping people find their way, whether it be in the church or in the world of Alpha-1.
I am excited to have the opportunity to work with AlphaNet. I have met some truly remarkable people and heard amazing stories during the past several years. I look forward to getting to know you and hearing your story.
