The TAA Wisconsin Chapter is hosting a virtual webinar series in place of their annual Tourette Connections conference, originally scheduled for March 13, 2020. The funding for this virtual series is being provided through the Small Grants Program, a program under the TAA’s partnership with the CDC. The Small Grants Program provides funding for TAA Chapters and Support Groups the opportunity to host outreach and education activities about Tourette Syndrome within their communities. This FREE live webinar series is appropriate for those with tics or Tourette Syndrome, family members, professionals and friends.
The Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community is diverse and inclusive. In honor of PRIDE month, the Tourette Association of America wants to shine a light upon the experiences of those from our LGBTQ community. Your impactful stories portray a life of struggle, success and love. It’s proof that the Tourette Syndrome and LGBTQ communities aren’t mutually exclusive. You have much to be proud about and now is your opportunity to have others hear your story. There are no limits to who you are and who you love.
Today not only kicks off Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, it is also the first day of our Virtual Conference 2020. There has never been a more important time to make the TAA your charity of choice. We have all experienced many changes over the last several weeks and now, more than ever, we need to come together to ensure the future of the only national organization dedicated to serving the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community.
