Jan 19 @ 1:00 pm

Date: Tuesday, January 19
Time: 1-2:30pm (EST)

For the last 16 years, the NIH-funded Natural History Study for Rett Syndrome has been collecting data from over 1000 Rett families. Hear from NHS Principal Investigators, Drs.

Learn how you can still take part in the NHS before its completion in July 2021.

And find out how your participation in the new Rett Clinical Disease Registry, launching in August 2021, will benefit Rett syndrome drug development.
