Helping Hands for GAND invites you to virtually join us and the GAND community on GAND Awareness Day, September 16, 2023, as we learn about different therapeutic approaches to GAND and hear an update from our leading researcher, Tyler Pierson, MD, PhD, of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Participants will have the opportunity toward the end of the conference to participate in a breakout session on a topic of their choice (selected during registration).

This conference is open to anyone around the world with an interest in GAND, so feel free to share with interested friends, family, and support professionals. We look forward to seeing you soon!
