4BC Brisbane

I (Megan) am going to be on Brisbane’s 4BC Monday afternoon talking about Capril!  They contacted us wanting to hear all about our initiative to help fight depression.  This is an exciting step in sharing Capril with the world (or at least Brisbane) and getting our message out there.  I’ll be talking about how it started, what it means, and how it is spreading.
