Dear members,

We've heard your feedback about our website and here's what we're doing:

In another week, you will notice some changes to the appearance and functionality of our website that we hope will simplify and improve your user experience. Starting September 1st, 2018, you will notice changes to the formatting of certain pages, particularly those where you engage with other members (i.e. forums, blogs, groups pages). Please be assured that the functionality on our website will remain the same.

If you have any questions about the changes to the website or about the website in general, please reach out to us at syndromic@syndromic.org.


Here are some pages and features that will look different:

  • Group pages
  • Group Admin menu
  • Forums
  • Blogs
  • Profile pages
  • Message Center
  • My Feed

Here are some of what you can still do:

  • Post to forums
  • Comment on forum and blog posts
  • Make Connections
  • Access all the same features on group pages
  • Receive messages
  • Access feeds

Here are some of the improvements for website consistency:

  • Having only one green menu bar across all pages on our website
  • Having the same right column with Latest News, Upcoming Events, and our Twitter feed appear across all pages on our website


Below are snapshots of some of the changes to look forward to:
