Tip of the Week: Finding support through the holidays
As we enter the holiday season it is especially critical to seek out and maintain support through the PWS community. Either in person or online there are many opportunities through conferences, local associations, or virtual get-togethers to be around people who understand the unique stressors of being a parent or loved one of someone diagnosed with PWS. If you need suggestions or connections do not hesitate to reach out to us for ideas.
