Community Connections

The need to live and work apart, these past few years, have emphasized a longstanding tenor of the GBS|CIDP Foundation, which is: connection is vital to the healing process. That’s why the Foundation has expanded our support programs and events even further with our new Community Connections program. This virtual and in person program offers multiple ways to connect with healthcare pros specializing in GBS, CIDP and variant conditions, inspiring thought leaders, legislators and industry leaders who are giving voice to our patients, and, of course, with other patients and caregivers. Community Connections is a monthly mix of supportive ZOOM coffee chats, Ask the Expert Webinars, and local chapter meetings that are either in-person or virtual.  Please see our schedule below.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
