Division of Genetics and Metabolism

Prader-Willi Syndrome

Divisional members regularly evaluate and follow individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome in our outpatient clinics. Dr. Dan Driscoll is especially involved in this program which has operated for more than twenty years. Evaluations involve review of the healthcare and genetic aspects of PWS as well as attention to dietary and growth concerns.  Dr. Driscoll is heavily involved with the national Prader-Willi Syndrome Association.  He is affiliated with the Alachua County ARC that operates an extensive residential program that enables optimal care and treatment of individuals with PWS.  This initiative is also linked to the clinic activities of the division.
