How very cool!

Kudos to the U team that made this happen.

Deseret New readers would have been better informed if mention had been made that the Sovaldi drug that made this possible is selling for $84,000 per person. This threatens to break the bank of the health care system and is a harbinger of things to come with other blockbuster drugs. The numbers don't make for a good human interest story but it is a critically important issue with far reaching human impact.
