The Professional Membership is an opportunity for professionals such as physicians to get involved with TSF to advance our mission. Allied health professionals are poised to improve resources and support for improved quality and access to care for individuals with Turner Syndrome! Here you will meet physicians who are making a difference.
Dr. Mary Gwyn Roper, Pediatric Endocrinologist is TSF’s newest Professional Member who is working to make a difference. Diagnosed at two years old, Dr. Roper became passionate about becoming a physician through her experiences growing up. Dr. Roper has contributed in the past by giving webinar presentations, providing peer review, and more. We are pleased to share that Dr. Roper is serving as a professional member and a member of the Medical Advisory Board!
Dr. Roper is working on several projects with TSF. The first is producing patient and caregiver resources so that information will be easily accessible. Additionally, Dr. Roper is involved in engaging other health care providers in advocacy. Finally, at this time we are collaborating to develop physician education to increase the understanding of TS and improve patient care.
