To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the International 22q11.2 Society, a special award was presented to recognize the long-term dedication of a group.

Congratulations to Profs. Beverly Emanuel and Donna McDonald-McGinn, along with colleagues at the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia (CHOP), who received the 20th Anniversary Special Service Award on July 12th, 2018, at the 11th Biennial International 22q11.2 Conference in Whistler, BC.

Along with Prof. Elaine Zackai, Prof. Emanuel published the first observation of the involvement of chromosome 22q in DiGeorge Syndrome. Since then, Profs. Beverly Emanuel and Donna McDonald-McGinn and the CHOP group have contributed significantly to patient care and research in 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome.
