Dr. Hartshorne has been interested in CHARGE Syndrome since 1989 when his son was born with the syndrome.

In addition to his publications on CHARGE, he has presented at every U.S. CHARGE conference, every Australasian conference, the European conference, Scandinavian conference, and conferences in several other countries. In 2005 he was awarded the Star in CHARGE by the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation.
