Syndrome Definition Committee (SDC)



The mission of the Syndrome Definition Committee (SDC) is to create, evaluate, and refine syndrome definitions, link users with similar syndrome definition needs, and create documentation along the way. We seek to be a resource for collaboration and best practices in the syndrome definition creation process.
