It is with great sadness that we share the loss of Ellen Meyers. Ellen’s involvement with the Tourette Association of America spans over 20 years. As a parent of an adult son with Tourette Syndrome and her background in education, Ellen has been an invaluable resource for the Tourette community. Her life’s work was dedicated to education and empowering youth.  Ellen was a dedicated member of the TAA Education Committee and the TAA Education Advisory Board. She was a tireless champion, advocate and role model for the community, touching the lives of so many.
For patients with Tourette Syndrome (TS) and Tic Disorders, it can be difficult to find specialists and many drive hours or travel lengthy distances for physician visits. This is especially true in rural areas.  The ability to conduct medical appointments/evaluations through a computer or electronic platform via telehealth could reduce leave from work and travel costs.
