The University of Rochester Medical Center is conducting a research study focusing on the impact of Tourette Syndrome on Children, Families and Communities. They are recruiting families of children ages 7-17 to participate in a one-time interview which will explore the child’s tics, as well as related disorders, such as ADHD, behavioral problems and anxiety. Children and parents from both groups will each be compensated $50 for their time. Dr. Jonathan Mink, MD, Ph.D. is the principal investigator. No blood sample or additional medication will be required for participation
in this study. For additional information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Alyssa Thatcher at (585) 276-5966.
