The Marfan Association UK is a service, research, and advocacy organization dedicated to supporting, educating, and researching Marfan syndrome. Marfan syndrome is an inherited disorder that affects the connective tissues of the heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular system). Established in 1984, the Marfan Association works with affected individuals, family members, specialists, researchers, general practitioners, and other medical specialists in the support role. Consisting of 1,600 members and 70 support groups, the organization produces educational materials including a self-titled newsletter, reports, brochures, fact sheets, and a directory. Program activities sponsored by the organization include awareness meetings, which are underway nationally on a continuing basis (a Marfan text is provided as appropriate) and support meetings, which are planned in its offices. The organization works to improve the effectiveness of the Marfan Support Network and provides translations of some materials in Spanish, Greek, and Russian.
