The first Tourette Association of America Conference I attended was in 2016 as the new President & CEO of the organization. It was a wonderful chance to immerse myself in the science, the challenges and the successes of our growing community. Most importantly, the parents, children and adults I met who are so deeply impacted each day by Tourette and Tic Disorders moved me.
The Tourette Association of America will visit Arlington, Virginia again in March 2018 to host the biennial National Education and Advocacy Conference. Additionally Anthony Ervin, USA Olympic swimmer and 4x medalist, will be in attendance. To learn more and register please visit tourette.org/conference18.
I know many face the stigma of Tourette Syndrome each and every day. As we continue to raise awareness and bolster knowledge about this misunderstood disorder, we hope you will join us to gain information on the latest-and-greatest in research, education, as well as parenting, youth and adult programming while building relationships that will last a lifetime.
