A sad loss for the TS community

Posted on 11 September 2019 by Helen Eadie


Tourettes Action was saddened to hear about the recent death of Kieron O'Conner – a well-known clinician and researcher in the field of Tourette Syndrome based at the Université de Montréal. Kieron was much-respected and extremely knowledgeable about TS and it’s co-morbidities writing extensively in this field. He made a valuable contribution to the development of cognitive behavioural treatment of tics. We send our respects to his family and colleagues.
