Tourette Support Without Travel

An ongoing series of suggestions for civic improvement

Knoxville needs a lot of things, like the buses should run seven days a week and later than 10, 11 p.m. But the biggest need I would like to talk about is for a Tourette Syndrome support group for Knoxville. Why? Because so many people who already have it now or are dealing with it—young or old—could get help, fellowship with other people: parents, kids, teens, young adults, doctors, neurologists, etc. And could get help right away. They wouldn't have to worry about going to Chattanooga, Nashville, or Memphis, or burning money for gas, food, or hotels.
