The new year brings renewed focus on things of importance and the resolve to achieve our goals. The Tourette Association of America’s resolve remains steadfast as we provide support, help and hope to those impacted by Tourette and Tic Disorders. We are starting the new year off strong! In this month’s Tourette Connect, you will read about the multinational effort to track outcomes for patients with Tourette Syndrome who undergo deep brain stimulation (DBS), a new series of online support groups for both young adults and parents, and our involvement with the Movement Disorders Policy Coalition.
Don’t forget to register for the 2018 National Education and Advocacy Conference. The largest conference dedicated to the Tourette and Tic Disorder community, the conference brings together experts in the field to address a variety of topics for the newly diagnosed and for those interested in learning more. We are pleased to announce that Anthony Ervin, four-time medalist and Olympic swimmer will be our keynote speaker this year. Do not miss this opportunity to hear from Anthony about how his Tourette Syndrome has played a role in his success.
