We are two weeks away from our 2017 Rare Neuro-Immune Disorders Symposium! This education and advocacy conference is for families, caregivers, and individuals diagnosed with ADEM, AFM, NMOSD, ON, and TM who want to learn about the latest research, diagnosis, and treatment of these disorders. The event presents a unique opportunity for community members to meet others and discuss shared experiences. The conference also allows participants to network with the leading medical experts in the field of rare neuro-immune disorders.
This year, the RNDS is being held in Columbus, Ohio on October 20th – 21st. We already have over 150 attendees registered, and would love to see you there as well! Included in the registration is two days packed with workshops and information sessions led by our medical experts and researchers. Participants also have the opportunity to participate in several research studies currently being conducted on rare neuro-immune disorders. Breakfast and lunch are provided both days, as well as a dinner reception on Friday night of the conference. Some topics that will be discussed include “Rehabilitation”, “Managing Fatigue in RNDs”, “Transition from Adolescents to young adults”, disorder-specific breakout sessions, and many more. To see the full list of topics and the agenda, please visit the RNDS event page.
Online registration for the RNDS closes Monday, October 9th, so make sure to register ASAP if you are planning to attend! On-site registration on the day of the event is available, but you will not be guaranteed a spot in your preferred workshop if space does not permit. Also, please be sure to indicate whether you will attend the Ohio Walk-Run-N-Roll, which is being held Sunday, October 22nd in Dublin, OH.
The TMA is excited to share the 2017 RNDS with our community and hopes to provide a meaningful and beneficial experience to all who attend. For those unable to attend, all talks will be video-recorded and made available in the Symposium Videos section of our Resource Library following the conference. If you have any questions about the 2017 RNDS or Ohio Walk-Run-N-Roll, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you in Columbus soon!
