Birmingham Maple Clinic Announces Opening of Fragile X Assessment and Treatment Clinic at the University of Michigan

We’re glad to hear about the grand opening of the Fragile X clinic in Michigan, part of the the Fragile X Clinical and Research Consortium. PR Web has an excellent article regarding it’s opening:

The University of Michigan Fragile X Assessment and Treatment Clinic celebrated its opening on June 23rd, the Birmingham Maple Clinic recently announced. The University of Michigan clinic is part of the National Fragile X Clinical & Research Consortium. Currently there are approximately 25 FXCRC clinics throughout the United States. Families of Fragile X patients and Fragile X Friendly Professionals were invited to attend the opening, which was a great success for all involved.

The idea for a Fragile X Clinic began with Lori Edelson, LMSW, at Birmingham Maple Clinic in 2010 when she invited a group of specialists from southeast Michigan to begin meeting with the mission of developing a clinic where Fragile X patients and their families could go for assessment, diagnosis and treatment. From those meetings, it was decided that it would be best to establish the clinic at a major research institution, and thus the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor was selected.
