Coordinating specialized education conferences for patients and caregivers
The purpose of patient workshops is to provide education, information and support to patients and their caregivers by experienced and knowledgeable providers. Turner Syndrome Foundation workshops have been organized since 2009, and reach patients in communities where they live. Many families travel a great distance to increase their understanding, gain new perspectives and learn about current resources.

“Beyond learning more about what is happening inside me, I met a lot of great people. I felt immediately welcomed into the TSF community with open arms. I never felt judged, which often happens being the shortest person in a room. Furthermore, I met other girls with TS for the first time in my life. I finally didn’t feel like I was alone. I could talk candidly with them about what I am going through and what I went through as a child. I’ve never felt comfortable doing that with my friends. Sure, I’ve told a few close friends what TS is and that I have it, but I’ve never went much further. As I said, I just never felt comfortable talking about something so personal. “ Jennifer
