TouretteConnect November

We have a lot to be grateful for at the Tourette Association of American as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday. Just last week we honored a tremendous friend, dedicated volunteer and committed member of the TAA community Ken Moelis at our annual Gala which took place on Monday, November 6. Thanks to Ken and his wife, TAA Board Member, Julie Moelis the organization raised over $3.4 million to support our important work.

We look forward to the 2018 National Education and Advocacy Conference and hope you will join us. The deadline for early-bird registration has been extended so I encourage you to take advantage of the reduced rate. And don’t forget that you can use your Health Savings Account dollars for registration fees before the end of the calendar year.

Whether we are providing much needed information and resources to those who have been newly-diagnosed or funding cutting-edge research into the causes and cures of Tourette Syndrome, we work to be there for those who need us. #GivingTuesday is just around the corner and we hope you will join the movement on November 28th by sharing your story, becoming a member and making a contribution.
