Search and Rescue

FAST Global Search & Rescue

FAST Search & Rescue (S&R): A global initiative that is being developed by an international consortium of esteemed clinical, diagnostic and genetic experts to identify all individuals living with Angelman syndrome worldwide. It is estimated that over 500,000 individuals are living with Angelman syndrome worldwide, yet only a small portion of these individuals are identified. The goal of FAST Search & Rescue TM is to help understand the true prevalence of Angelman syndrome (globally and within each country). This, in turn, will help to ensure that opportunities for access to education, support, and community resources are available to all.

FAST Global Search and Rescue invites the global Angelman syndrome community to join this initiative.
