LANSING, Mich., July 1, 2021 — The House adopted House Resolution 138, which declares July 2021 as Fragile X Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. State Rep. Tullio Liberati (D-Allen Park), sponsor of the resolution, issued the following statement:

“Even though Fragile X has been studied for decades and is easily identified by testing, the inherited genetic disease goes frequently undiagnosed. My nephew, Antonio, has Fragile X. Early intervention and therapy are necessary to develop a full range of skills and behaviors. This resolution is an important step in raising awareness around Fragile X to educate and drive advancements toward treatments and a cure.”
