Tip of the Week: May is PWS Awareness Month

April 26, 2019

Next week we begin an entire month dedicated to Prader-Willi syndrome awareness. We will be posting daily tips on social media and a weekly compilation of tips on the Latham “Tip of the Week” blog every Friday in May. We’ll also share some of the activities on campus and in our Adult Program celebrating our favorite month!

For families and providers, we know that PWS comes with unique challenges and attributes, and we’ll highlight those throughout PWS Awareness Month. Stay tuned and be sure to check our online postings for a new tip each day.
