One of the main aspects of the Turner Syndrome Foundation’s (TSF) mission is increasing awareness and education about Turner Syndrome (TS) and supporting the TS community. One of the ways TSF accomplishes this is through its blog, which you’re reading now! We want to introduce you to the TSF blog team, the volunteers who make this initiative possible.
A team of writers from a variety of backgrounds contribute to the wide range of blog posts you can read on our website.
Content Planning & Scheduling
Liz R. is the mind behind the content and scheduling of TSF’s blog posts. Liz is an undergraduate student at Stockton University in New Jersey. A sociology and anthropology major, Liz has a passion for teaching and helping others. She is also skilled at research, which helps her find excellent sources to reference in TSF’s blog posts.
Susan is a woman with TS, a linguist, an editor, a teacher, and so much more. She produces the My Story blog series, which tells the stories of individuals and families affected by TS. She is also the lead editor for the blog (see below).
Two volunteers write about health-related topics. Reyn has a Master’s Degree in Narrative Medicine, providing him the ability to explain complex topics in a way that is understandable to a variety of readers. Dhruvi is an undergraduate student at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a future neuroscientist. She has contributed her excellent research and writing skills to create informative blog posts on health topics.
Catherine is a Latin teacher interested in medical communications. She lends her skills by writing blog posts about new TS research and what we can learn from it.
Skylar is an undergraduate student studying psychology at Appalachian State University in North Carolina. She writes about topics relating to the soft sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology, anthropology, or political science) and mental health.
Once a blog post has been written, a team of editors reviews its content and language to ensure it is accurate and informative. Together, the editing team ensures TSF’s blog posts are the best they can be.
The lead editor, Susan, has expert editing skills and does a final review of each article before it is published.
Ruchika is a life sciences research professional transitioning into medical writing, and Prabhat is a medical doctor providing primary care. Finally, Liz D. is a laboratory technician with lots of experience with medical writing.
TSF is so grateful for this team of volunteers who make the blog an excellent resource for the TS community.
