Dr. Tammy Buck will travel to Orlando, Florida on Thursday, Jan. 10 to collaborate with Dr. Jennifer Miller, an endocrinologist with the University of Florida Division of Endocrinology, whose focus is the research and treatment of children with Prader-Willi Syndrome.

Miller’s families are running the Disney World Half Marathon to raise funds in support of the UF-based program Running for Research. Miller has invited Buck to join efforts and provide a special give-back clinic for these children and their families. Buck will assess participating athletes, which will expedite their access to care. This clinic will open the door for future opportunities for Buck’s initiative, Together We Run, which is based out of south Atlanta but recently launched here in Gainesville.
