AFTD’s Education Conference a Huge Success!

With 248 attendees, this was the largest gathering of FTD caregivers, people affected, families and medical professionals to date.

I attended the conference for the first time and thought it was wonderful. Great info, well run, met people who I had only talked to on the phone and familiar faces from the support groups I go to.

The AFTD hosted its Education Conference and Annual Meeting in White Plains, NY, on March 14, 2014.
