27th Annual FD Family Day and Conference June 10 in NYC

The Dysautonomia Foundation is presenting its annual Family Day and Conference for families who have been affected by Familial Dysautonomia (FD). Some in our PROSE treatment community have FD, a rare genetic neurological condition that affects the sensory and autonomic nervous systems causing a number of severe health problems including ophthalmologic problems. Each year, the Dysautonomia Foundation, dedicated to research, support, and public awareness of FD, brings together FD families for a day of information sharing, networking, and fun.
