About this Event

The CJD Foundation's Family Conference, held in Washington, D.C., brings together prion disease experts and families affected by prion disease.

Friday, we'll host family workshops. Saturday and Sunday, we’ll learn about the latest scientific discoveries. We invite scientists conducting new and promising prion disease research to speak to our families about their work. We’ll also hear about the work of the CJD Foundation, the National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Monday is devoted to visiting your state representatives on Capitol Hill. We set up appointments for those families wishing to participate and provide advocacy training on Sunday afternoon. This is a unique opportunity to make our voices heard and to request continued funding for prion disease surveillance.
