Transition Day

Tuesday, 15th May 2018 9:00 am

Becoming an adult is a process that sparks change in everyone’s lives, including individuals with 22q. “How will 22q symptoms affect my life as I become an adult?” This is a common question for many of our patients and their families.

The Dalglish Family 22q Clinic, in collaboration with The SickKids Good 2 Go Transition Program and The SickKids 22q Deletion Syndrome Clinic, offers the 22q Transition Clinic several times a year. This full day program gives individuals with 22q information about adult care and shows how we make a smooth transition from the 22q Clinic at SickKids to our Dalglish Family 22q Clinic at the Toronto General Hospital.

We look forward to holding our next 22q Transition Clinic on Tuesday, May 15th, 2017.
