We are very excited to present to you our first ever Virtual Penn Frontotemporal Degeneration Center (FTD) Caregiver Conference.
Though we had hoped to hold an in-person conference on November 13, 2020, we have elected to cancel this event because of continuing concern about the risk of COVID-19. This means that there will be no in-person Caregiver Conference in 2020, but we will aim to hold our annual conference in-person next spring. We thank you for your understanding and patience.
The below link will direct you to our YouTube playlist, where you will be able to view the virtual conference in its entirety. Listed below that, you will find the presenters and their presentation titles—we encourage you to watch all of them, as everyone brings unique knowledge and vital information.
