A Discussion With Our Esteemed Panel of Research and Clinical Professionals

By Missy Zolecki

We receive inquiries and questions daily about the Fragile X premutation. We are excited to share this dynamic panel discussion that includes both research and clinical professionals from the 18th NFXF International Fragile X Conference. This session took place after Dr. Randi Hagerman presented her Premutation Concerns presentation.

Each of the panelists answer questions from their experiential perspectives on topics related to the Fragile X premutation, including FXTAS, FXPOI, and other emerging areas of concern.  

We encourage you to grab a pen and paper to take notes as you listen to the organic and passionate discussions in this collaborative panel.  

Presenters: Drs. David Hessl, Emily Allen, Deborah Hall, and Randi Hagerman
Moderator: Hilary Rosselot
