Congressional Briefing on Tourette Syndrome
On March 1, 2018, more than 100 Tourette Association of America representatives went to Capitol Hill for our National Advocacy Day. Participants met with 94 House and Senate offices to discuss TAA’s top priorities including continued funding for the CDC Tourette Syndrome Program, funding for medical research, better access to treatments and the need for telemedicine coverage.
The Children’s Congressional Luncheon briefing had incredible speeches by Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Sara Maskornick with Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) and three of TAA’s amazing Youth Ambassadors. The briefing was widely attended by Congressional staff and representative from other patient and disability groups and DC stakeholders.
