Although the genetic underpinnings of fragile X syndrome are known by scientists, it often goes undetected due to lack of awareness among the public and sometimes in the medical community. We are proud of South Carolina for increasing efforts to raise awareness about this condition, with the aim of helping patients with the fragile X gene make better-informed decisions and encouraging all South Carolinians to fight for early diagnosis and treatment of this disorder.
Governor Henry McMaster proclaimed July 22nd, 2018 at Fragile X Awareness Day in South Carolina. In honor of this occasion, Dr. Roberts will be speaking at the SC State House Lobby in Columbia on Monday, July 23rd at 11:00AM. Please consider coming out to the State House to commemorate this special occasion!
