Turner syndrome, a chromosomal condition affecting 1 out of every 2,500 female births, can often go undiagnosed for a number of years, resulting in a lack of the necessary medical, cognitive, and cardiac care. With continuing-education programs aimed at informing school nurses about the signs and symptoms of the condition, Turner Syndrome Society North Carolina Chapter endeavors to reduce the prevalence of late diagnoses and improve the health and life of women and families living with TS.
Turner Syndrome Society's 90-minute educational luncheon informs local school nurses about the symptoms and nature of Turner syndrome. Families and women with TS will also present their experiences and answer questions, educating school nurses on the syndrome and increasing the likelihood that they will be able to provide resources to schoolchildren and families in the future. Following a short introduction, a luncheon, and a one-hour video, participants will take a certification test from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help reduce late diagnoses of Turner syndrome. If G-Team members raise $280, then Turner Syndrome Society will provide one local school district an educational luncheon about the syndrome to 35 school nurses. Each additional $280 will fund registration for another local school district.
