The Usher Syndrome Coalition is launching our first "USH Local Social" events in 2023. This initiative is in direct response to the Usher community's request to meet others in their home communities. Local socials may be virtual or in person. We will add locations and events here as information becomes available. If you are interested in hosting an USH Local Social in your area, reach out to us at email@example.com.
