Founded in 1972 in Bayside New York, the national Tourette Syndrome Association is the only national voluntary non-profit membership organization in this field. Our mission is to identify the cause of, find the cure for and control the effects of Tourette Syndrome. We offer resources and referrals to help people and their families cope with the problems that occur with TS. We raise public awareness and counter media stereotypes about TS. Our membership includes individuals, families, relatives, and medical and allied professionals working in the field.
Program development, education and medical programs, government outreach, adherence to TSA’s mission, maximizing efforts, minimizing expenses, event management, awareness, media, publications, chapter relations, research grants, scientific and medical conferences, are ongoing efforts of TSA’s full-time professional staff. Volunteers of extraordinary dedication and professional merit serve on TSA’s Board of Directors, Medical Advisory Board(MAB), and Scientific Advisory Board (SAB).
