International SATB2 Day
International SATB2 Day is an annual event held on 22nd August. It is celebrated by 7 international organisations around the world, who all support people with SATB2 Associated Syndrome, their families and caregivers.
We celebrate on the 22 August in recognition of Dr Yuri Zarate, who is a geneticist from Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Little Rock US. Our community honours him in his dedication to our children and our families in ongoing support within genetic counselling and research efforts.
Each year SATB2 Gene Foundation Australia aims to organise events across Australia to bring our community together to celebrate our loved ones living with SATB2, raise awareness of this rare condition and thank those who are on the journey with us.
