Organized and developed by The International 22q11.2 Foundation, 22q at the Zoo is an event that gives families, friends and professionals a chance to socialize, network and raise the public profile of chromosome 22q11.2 syndromes. Volunteers spread awareness by handing out our 22q fact sheets and educating anyone interested enough to stop and ask about 22q. The event kicks off in New Zealand and continues westward ending in the South Pacific having literally circled the globe. Participants are recognizable, wearing the official “22q at the Zoo” red T-shirt and “Ask me about 22q” buttons.
CNY 22q at Utica Zoo will have lunch together at 11:45am, and listen to a talk by Amy Maiorano at 12:45pm in the zoo’s amphitheater. Children 12 and under are free, while guests 13 and older are $5. Stop at the 22q entrance booth to register. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
