PRISMS stands for Parents and Researchers Interested in Smith-Magenis Syndrome (SMS). Our vision is to inspire and empower the worldwide SMS community in order to support and improve the lives of everyone affected by SMS. We do this by engaging with families, physicians, educators, and researchers through our programs. It takes a village to care for an individual with SMS, and we strive to make it as easy as possible for families of individuals with SMS to find that village.
Support for PRISMS is critical in order to allow us to continue to provide ongoing support for families in the SMS community - this means creation and distribution of awareness materials, our ongoing communications, and our biennial conference and regional events. Support for PRISMS also allows us to continue cultivating the best possible resources around SMS by enabling us to engage professionals to update our resources and fund research to gain new knowledge about SMS.
