AFTD Education Conference 2013
The Annual AFTD Education Conference is in Salt Lake City, Utah on April 12, 2012.
Caregivers as well as patients have been invited to the conference. Last year was the first year patients were invited. We had 9 patients and it was a successful meeting. This would be a good place for us to get educated on FTD as well as have our voice heard as to the needs of patients. This year we're planning more activities for patients to get together. Since FTD is such a rare disease, this is an opportunity to see your not alone and learn different tecqniques of dealing with FTD. It's also an opportunity to get for caregivers and patients to get educated on the latest information on FTD.
