May 2015: 22q at the Zoo Awareness Day

January 2015: The International 22q11.2 Foundation is pleased to announce that Robert Miller has joined our team as part-time Acting Director. Robert brings over 40 years of experience to the role including nearly 14 years as Executive Director of the National Fragile X Foundation (NFXF). During his time at the NFXF, Robert was able to guide the organization from being a one-person office representing an unknown condition to a robust and internationally recognized organization that substantially improved awareness, diagnosis and treatment of Fragile X. We are looking forward to Robert bringing that experience to the 22q community and helping us with the many, similar challenges.
