“I’m so pleased to have a chance to share non-drug approaches that our organization has found helpful. I hope members of our ACN Latitudes ‘family’ will attend!

You may have caught Brad Cohen’s story in the inspiring CBS movie “Front of the Class” on the Hallmark Hall of Fame several years ago, or read his award-winning book of the same title. The movie dramatizes his challenges dealing with Tourette syndrome as a child and as an adult. A popular elementary school teacher for many years, he is now an assistant principal in the Atlanta area.
Brad has made a tremendous contribution to the field of Tourette syndrome, putting a positive face on the condition. He has been on Oprah and featured in a number of TV programs and new articles. (See People magazine’s article.) We commend Brad’s dedication in developing and directing his foundation, which has encouraged and educated thousands throughout the country.
