About this Event

Please join clinical and genetic experts from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for a special educational and networking event for individuals with Skraban-Deardorff syndrome and their families. This free event is open to families of any child or adult who has been diagnosed with this rare genetic disorder, or who has had a concerning change in the WDR26 gene identified through genetic testing.

The event will include:

Mini patient evaluations and family consultations available by appointment with Cara M. Skraban, MD, Matthew A. Deardorff, MD, PhD, Christopher Gray, MS, LCGC, and Katie Grand, MS, LCGC. (Please bring any relevant patient records or provide a Records Release to [email protected])
