Thanks to the generosity of the Coca-Cola Foundation and to a matching personal contribution by its Chairman, Mr. Muhtar Kent, ASI has been able to partner with patients, families, treating physicians, and researchers in Turkey to host a Turkish Family Meeting this June 29-July 2 in Bolu, Turkey at Abant Izzet Baysal University. Dr. Koksal Ozgul, ASI Board Member, Dr. Selma Duzenli Gepdiremen, a member of ASI’s Scientific Advisory Board, and Aysegul Guzel, a doctoral candidate who has worked on Alström Syndrome at the Jackson Laboratory, have served as co-organizers of the event. We thank them for their hard work and for “making it happen.” For those who are interested, a complete agenda can be found on the web page under conferences. Nearly all of the sessions will be conducted in Turkish, but, as always, anyone wishing to attend may do so! If interested, contact Robin at ASIRobin@hotmail.com.
