This section is an initiative of the CDG Global Task Force on Science and Medical Communication and Outreach
"Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success", by Henry Ford.
Seven international key opinion leaders joint in a volunteer basis the CDG Global Task Force on Science and Medical Communication and Outreach. The 3 major goals are: (1) to increase understanding in a friendly language about the basic, translational and clinical research that is being done in the field of CDG (2) to boost the community education & empowerment (3) and to engage the community in relevant topics related to our current Biomedical findings for CDG

Together, they do major efforts to delineate a CDG global plan for communication and outreach. The target audience is: 1st . Families; 2nd . Professionals; 3rd . Media; and 4th . General public. In addition, resources for our community are created by volunteers (for instance, scientific and medical publications to put on spotlight or press releases highlighting relevant research, to be disseminated among social media and so forth). And finally, we wish to be able to create a Global CDGScience and Medical Communication and Outreach Toolkit. Hopefully, this can be helpful for CDG and related diseases.
