Welcome to the Turner Syndrome Society of Minnesota website. We are the Minnesota chapter of the Turner Syndrome Society. We meet in various locations in the Twin Cities once a month or so. We are a forum for both adult Turner women and parents of Turner girls. We feel we all benefit from getting to know each other. Our Mission is to “Create awareness, promote research and provide support for all persons touched by Turner syndrome.” Check out the planned activities on the Activity Page!
February is Turner Syndrome Awareness Month and we are pleased the Governor has issued the following proclamation:
