On Saturday, June 25, internationally-recognized experts will discuss the latest in TS diagnosis, treatments and research. Individuals with TS, a chronic tic disorder, often present with a complex neuropsychiatric syndrome that can include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other behavioral problems. This presents diagnostic and treatment challenges for physicians and others who deal with these patients, such as behavioral health professionals and school personnel. This half-day program will help clarify some of the complexity around TS by providing the latest and most complete information available.

Registration deadline is June 20, 2011. To register, call 1-800-247-9580 or visit AtlanticHealth.org and click on Classes & Events. Click here for directions to Overlook Medical Center. Parking will be available in the West Garage directly across from the hospital’s Main Entrance. Credits are available for physicians, psychiatrists, mental health workers, nurses and social workers. Registration fees are $75 for physicians and $25 for non-physicians.
