65 years of education, collaboration, and friendships.
NAF is proud to coordinate the Annual Ataxia Conference (AAC). At this annual gathering attendees meet and learn from world-leading Ataxia researchers and clinicians, network, and reunite with old friends. Hundreds of people – from patients, to caregivers, to medical professionals – travel from all over the world to attend the conference. Attendees get the opportunity to learn about Ataxia subjects such as: research, genetics, physical therapy, living with Ataxia, coping, financial planning, caregiving, and more.
March 18-19, 2022
Save the date for the 2022 AAC! We will be at the Caribe Royale resort in Orlando, Florida. Planning your trip? VisitOrlando has information and deals to help you explore the city. Detailed information about registration, hotel reservations, and travel grants are now available.
We were excited to host the 2021 conference 100% online, broadening the event’s reach and making it accessible to our global community. No masks were required since everyone joined us from the comfort of their own home.
We hope you will enjoy the recordings of the sessions presented at 2021 AAC! Check back frequently. We will add two new sessions each month.
Helping those in need travel to the conference.
A Travel Grant fund was created to help individuals attend the AAC. These grants are for low-income individuals who have Ataxia. They assist with the costs associated with traveling to the event. The grants are funded by donations.
The Annual Ataxia Conference Travel Grant Fund is offered in remembrance of Arnie Gruetzmacher, who chaired the AAC planning committee from 1980-2016. Donate to help individuals learn, network, and discover new research opportunities.
Each year, world-leading Ataxia researchers and clinicians present great information. Those sessions are recorded. View sessions from previous years at the links below.
