Brain Support Network (brainsupportnetwork.org) is hosting a PSP/CBD Research Update and Family Conference, on Saturday, October 28, at the Crowne Plaza Foster City (San Francisco Bay Area). This is a conference for families coping with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal degeneration (CBD).
BSN's conference partner is Dr. Adam Boxer and the team at the UCSF Memory & Aging Center. UCSF is at the lead for PSP and CBD clinical trials, and important imaging research. We are lucky to have them in our backyard!
The conference will run from about 9am to 5pm. The morning will feature international researchers in town for a major conference on PSP, CBD, and tau. The afternoon will feature Bay Area clinicians (from UCSF and Stanford), healthcare professionals, and families.
Registration will open in early September. Join BSN's PSP or CBD email list -- www.brainsupportnetwork.org/about-bsn/join-our-email-list/ -- and we’ll send you an update when registration opens. Alternatively, check back at BSN's website, brainsupportnetwork.org, in September to register. Our meeting facilities will accommodate 150 participants.
Stay tuned for more details!
