"What Makes You Tic?"

Today, Tuesday, October 5th at 12:00 p.m. in the Warshof Conference Center, R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center, Monroe A & B

Marc Elliot knows the importance of understanding people's differences. He was born with a rare disease that left him with virtually no intestines and at age nine, he developed a neurological disorder called Tourette's syndrome.  He is now inspiring audiences all across the country by sharing his life story to convey the value of tolerance and the basic attitudes and behaviors that allow it to flourish.  Marc's inspiring speech “What Makes You Tic?” is loaded with timely humor, powerful anecdotes, and fundamental lessons of tolerance to encourage audiences to “Live and Let Live,” leaving audiences motivated, better-informed, and reflecting on their own lives.
