The Dalglish Family 22q Clinic is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is the first of its kind in the world to focus on adults with 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome (22q11.2DS or 22q). We serve individuals who are at least 17 years of age.
We provide patient-centred care to adults and their families from specialists in the fields of:
- Medical psychiatry
- Social work
...and most of all, in 22q!
In addition, we educate patients, families, trainees, and health care providers.
We also perform world class research to improve the quality of life for individuals and families affected by the syndrome.
Note: Unfortunately, we are unable to accept patients from the USA. If you live in the States and are searching for 22q medical help, please check with the hospitals in your area. A 22q clinic (even if it is in a pediatric hospital) can tell you where to go. You can also check the list of 22q clinics on the website of the International 22q11.2 Foundation.
