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.
Visit our Youth, Teen, & Young Adult Events page for upcoming events!
In the upcoming weeks and months we will be providing educational content for all ages on our website and social media channels (look for #gbscidpYTA), connecting young people with their peers in similar situations and creating opportunities and experiences for YTA’s to get involved in our foundation.
Currently, we are encouraging families with youths age (8-12), teens (13-19) and young adults, age (20-26) to consider attending our 2021 SYMPOSIUM WASHINGTON D.C. on Saturday, October 7th – 9th 2021. Mark your calendars for an inspiring LIVE event featuring the best medical & wellness experts. 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!
