Please join us on Monday, August 28th, 3:00 – 4:30 pm EST on Zoom. Our Science Director, Dr. Kit Donohue, will overview the current therapies in development for Lafora Disease. Afterward, several of our researchers and clinicians will be available to answer any questions you have about current treatments and medications.
We want to highlight Dr. Viet-Huong Nguyen, a pharmacist with a special interest in Lafora disease, who will be in attendance. Dr. Nguyen is an associate professor at Chapman University whose research interests include epilepsy. She answered questions from families in attendance at the 2022 Lafora Disease Science Symposium and presented at our June Research Roundtable. We are grateful for her to share her wealth of knowledge again with the community!
