Calling All Healthcare Professionals, Advocates, and Policymakers

Calling all Healthcare Professionals, Advocates, and Policymakers

Like a fortified scaffold, an informed healthcare team can support a woman with TS in achieving their health goals. As girls with Turner syndrome (TS) grow into adults, these patients can benefit from primary care physicians and specialists adept at TS care in the middle and later phases of life. However, these regional physician networks, which are teams of physicians who work together to provide high-quality, coordinated care, are still majorly underdeveloped.

How Do You Help?

Join the upcoming FREE We Learn Webinar, titled Pediatric Referrals, to discuss the importance of regional physician networks and their role in the transition from pediatric to adult health care among various specialists on June 12, 2024, from 8 to 9 p.m. EST

The guest speaker is Doris Fadoju, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Emory University, who currently serves as the medical director of the Multidisciplinary Turner Syndrome Clinic, which serves TS patients in Georgia. 

What Will the Webinar Discuss?

The webinar will address several topics, including an introduction to the Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES) special interest group on TS. Healthcare professionals will learn appropriate action steps to take when they suspect TS or need to refer a patient to an endocrinologist. Dr. Fadoju will also discuss the coordination of complex care, the importance of providing a medical home to those with TS, and effective ways to follow up care for patients with TS.

  1. Please try to be more inclusive in your language. You are dismissing a whole group of people when you use only “girls” and “women.” Transgender males can have TS, too, and they also deserve support. It does not lessen the impact of your message to use terms like “people” or “individuals,” as was the previous practice when I was the Blog Coordinator.
