The International 22q Foundation takes our role as a non-profit organization very seriously to help share credible information to help slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and help protect the communities we serve.
Although all in person events have been “postponed” in accordance with recent guidelines, the International 22q Foundation will still be here on line, for any questions you may have, and staff is working from home, to provide the most up-to-the-minute information.
In these difficult times, please know that we are here for you–and your families — please be safe and stay healthy — and keep in touch with us!
