Babies affected with Turner Syndrome require a lifetime of specialized care beyond the pediatric setting. Obstacles often impede an early diagnosis for girls to receive critical health screenings and timely, life-altering, interventions. The Foundation’s advocacy efforts identify these gaps and give voice to leaders who can make a difference. The vision to improve the understanding of TS and to render support for women and children living with TS is made possible by advancing communications and inspiring relevant interest in this women’s health issue. Legislative advocacy, education, and research are cornerstone to improved outcomes. For more information about Turner Syndrome, please visit https://turnersyndromefoundation.org/welcome/ or call 1-800-594-4585.
