Are you wanting to understand the current state of clinical care recommendations and appointments? Maybe you’re wondering which clinical trials and future research look the most promising? And what about other local resources for your loved one and family? Perhaps you would like an opportunity to re-connect and re-center with your Rett community?
We’ll be sharing insights on this, and much more during our upcoming Town Hall Meeting – live-streamed – on Saturday, December 5, 2020, at 11am -12:30pm (CT).
Join us as Rettsyndrome.org, and the Rett Clinic team at Vanderbilt Kennedy Center discuss clinical care recommendations and appointments, clinical trials, the research process, and family empowerment opportunities.
Join us Tuesday, December 8th, at 1:00 pm (EDT) to hear from Tristen Dinkel, RN about Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) in Rett syndrome. Our loved ones with Rett syndrome often exhibit particular eye movements or gaze patterns. Is this a motor behavior or visual strategy? What do our children see? How do they process visual information?

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.
