Bipartisan Congressional Caucus on Tourette Syndrome
As you may know, over the past few months, the national Tourette Syndrome Association (TSA) worked very closely with Members of the US House of Representatives to establish a Bipartisan Congressional Caucus on Tourette Syndrome.
Please take a few minutes and send a letter to your representatives asking them to join the Caucus and send staffers to the Congressional Briefing on TS (being convened by the Caucus) on September 17. If they’ve already joined, just send a thank you note.

Dear TSA Members, Family and Friends:
We need your help to invite Congressional Staffers and fedeal agencies to The Bipartisan Congressional Caucus Briefing; entitled, "Understanding Tourette Syndrome and Making Connections."
The briefing will be held on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 1:00 pm. Presentations will be given by affected families, scientists working on breakthroughs, doctors who treat TS, and educators knowledgeable on the accommodations that can help students with TS get a better education.
The intent is to help federal elected officials and government agencies understand how they can become involved in addressing the complex needs of individuals and families living with TS. So that we can seek stronger support and understanding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the US Department of Education (DOE) and other federal agencies to advance work on TS; let's use this unique opportunity to educate and influence our government.
Are you passionate about spreading Tourette Syndrome awareness? Contact us if you would like to become a trained One Tic at a Time volunteer! We'll arm you with the information and strategies- all you need is the heart and desire to educate others as to what TS is all about. Email us for more information! firstname.lastname@example.org
We are always looking for great volunteers to help us spread awareness and educate.
