Due to the many requests for this information in languages other than English, we have added the capability to translate the Foundation YouTube Videos into 60 different languages using Closed Captions, (CC), Settings and the Google Translate tool.  With Google Translate: "Automatic translation is convenient and helps people get a quick gist of the page. However, it's not a perfect substitute for the art of professional translation.”  We apologize in advance for any translation issues.  Over time, we will be working with medical professionals in each geography to validate the accuracy of each translation.
