The Professional Membership is an opportunity for professionals such as physicians to get involved with TSF to advance our mission. You can help us improve resources and supports for individuals with Turner Syndrome!
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. Now she is the newest 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.
Another important effort involving many physicians is the Council on Cardiology. This project will produce education about the cardiovascular health concerns for individuals with Turner Syndrome. The education will ensure that physicians are aware of the care guidelines. This ongoing council involves esteemed physicians from around the country and is in its final stages. Make sure to follow along for updates!
