Here is the afternoon session for the CME Tourette workshop for all allied healthcare professionals working with Tourette and tic disorders, courtesy of the Weill Cornell Medical College and the NY State Consortium Centers of Excellence with the Tourette Association of America. This symposium will offer an overview on tic disorders for community healthcare providers to help them accurately diagnose and manage tic disorders and comorbid conditions across the lifespan. In a highly interactive format, health care providers will receive practical information and tools for their first patient encounter with Tourette and tic disorders.
Two individuals, Ellie Jarvie and Andy Tiefenthaler, sit down in Wisconsin to discuss their various experiences and challenges with living with Tourette Syndrome. Andy Tiefenthaler is a young adult with Tourette Syndrome who shares his experience working at the Tourette Syndrome Camp USA. Ellie Jarvie also shares her experiences as a TAA Wisconsin Chapter Chairmember. Ellie Jarvie speaks about her life as she was a young teen into her thirties and her struggles with going in public with her tics. The two also discuss a dance they both attended that was organized by Andy Tiefenthaler in the 9th grade to raise money and awareness for Tourette Syndrome.  "Tourette's is just another art form." -Andy Tiefenthaler
