Fourth Community Meeting & Natural History Study Sign Up

We had an informative meeting this week hosted by Dr. Helen Chen and guest speaker Dr. David Bearden, who is distinguished pediatric neurologist and neurogeneticist from the University of Rochester. Dr. Bearden, who has been a valued collaborator with the YWHAG Foundation and serves on our research/advisory board, shared exciting updates about the upcoming Natural History Study for the YWHAG Genetic Mutation.

The Importance of the Natural History Study


The Natural History Study is a cornerstone of our research efforts, and its success relies on the active participation of families affected by the YWHAG genetic mutation. Here’s why your involvement is crucial:


- Understanding Disease Progression: By tracking health data over time, we can identify key patterns and milestones in the disease's progression, providing valuable insights for researchers.

- Guiding Research: The study’s findings will help pinpoint potential therapeutic targets, leading to the development of effective treatments and potentially a cure.

- Supporting Families: Comprehensive data collection will aid in managing the condition better, improving the quality of life for those affected.

- Building Awareness: Increased knowledge about the YWHAG mutation will drive more funding and interest, accelerating scientific breakthroughs.


We urge all families impacted by the YWHAG genetic mutation to sign up for the Natural History Study. Your participation is vital for advancing research and finding new ways to support and treat those affected by this rare condition.
