487 people attended

Join us for part I of the first virtual five-series symposium: Acute Flaccid Myelitis: What we have learned in order to be prepared. A symposium for health care providers, scientists, parents, and families.


Although parents and families of AFM patients may join any of the symposia, symposia IV and V will specifically focus on families and care of patients with AFM and is geared toward health care providers, pediatricians, neurologists, emergency and intensive care unit providers, therapists, nurses and physical and rehabilitation personnel.
