Our team understands ALS, FTD, and related disorders can impact an entire family even when just one person is diagnosed. However, we also recognize the unique challenges and situations that arise from familial or genetic diseases. We have designed this exclusive event to recognize and address these topics for people living with or at risk for a familial and/or genetic form of FTD/ALS. You will have the chance to hear from genetic counselors, neurologists, and social workers on the genetics of FTD and ALS and have the chance to ask your questions in real-time.
