Members Statement - Prader-Willi Syndrome



Tuesday, 2 May 2023.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (15:43):

Prader-Willi syndrome is a randomly occurring disorder where some of the genes in chromosome 15 are inactive or missing.

The syndrome affects development and growth. Many of Melbourne’s Prader-Willi families recently met in Hampton to walk and raise awareness for the syndrome.

The recent walk was the first since COVID and a special opportunity to re-engage and raise awareness.
