Youth, Teen and Young Adult Events

“Teens & YA Connect” Zoom Session!

Our Youth, Teen & Young Adult program (YTA) has officially kicked off “Teens & YA Connect.” Teens & YA (Young Adults) Connect is a casual zoom hangout session for younger patients (16 – 26) to meet one another and share your experiences with GBS, CIDP, or variant conditions. A big part of what the YTA Program is designed to do is provide a safe and open place where younger patients can meet (virtually) with other peers who understand the challenges they are facing in their everyday lives. We want to encourage all younger patients to join us on these casual zoom gatherings to share their experiences and use this as an outlet to listen to one another and build lasting friendships.  Every zoom gathering will be moderated by an adult, who will guide conversations, as needed, throughout the session.
