The Australian Gorlin Syndrome Mutual Support Group
The Australian Gorlin Syndrome Mutual Support Group has representatives in New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and Victoria. Whilst giving each other mutual support we also spread awareness of the condition through Dermatology Conferences, Rare Diseases Events and the Genetic Services Networks. Some meet regularly for coffee, others get together for lunch on a regular basis. Members in South Australia started “Gorlin Syndrome In and Beyond Australia” on Facebook and a Microbiologist in the group started “Gorlin SyndromeAustralia Blog” Please visit our website for more information: www.gorlinsyndromesupportaustralia.weebly.com
