Youth, Teen and Young Adults (YTA)
The Youth, Teen and Young Adult Program (YTA) is designed to provide support and education to younger patients and their families with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, CIDP, or variant conditions. It is important to have a program where YTA’s can relate to other peers who understand the challenges they are facing while coping with a rare condition.

*Currently, we are encouraging families with youths age (8-12), teens (13-19) and young adults, age (20-26) to consider attending our 2021 Virtual Summit this October. Mark your calendars for an inspiring event filled with guidance and information from leading medical experts, inspiration from other patients and caregivers, and plenty of practical tips to support you along every step of your journey. Topics will range from the latest news in Research and Clinical Trials, Best Practices for Managing Pain and Building Resilience to Understanding Medical Insurance and Coping with Long-Term Residuals.
We are also encouraging families with youth, teens or young adults that would like to know more, or possibly assist us in the program development process, to please reach out to our YTA Program leader, Meg Mains, at Meg.Mains@gbs-cidp.org. We look forward to connecting with you!
