The Stickler Involved People (SIP) is a voluntary organization dedicated to educating and giving support to those affected by Stickler syndrome. Stickler syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects connective tissue, including the joints, eyes, palate, heart, and hearing. The disorder is characterized by possible vision problems, hearing loss, early arthritis, cleft palate, and heart murmurs. It is extremely variable from case to case. Established in 1995, the organization focuses on patient networking and communication as the most effective and personal means of helping people who have this condition. In addition, the group utilizes its newsletter and on-line correspondence to further develop interpatient contact. SIP publishes informational brochures, a quarterly newsletter, and physician updates, and offers a networking service and a database of information for affected individuals. SIP also has an annual conference. New in 2003 is a college scholarship for a high school graduate diagnosed with Stickler syndrome.
