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.

As interest continues to grow from the pharmaceutical industry in developing drugs to treat Ataxia, we believe that collaboration among researchers, clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, and Ataxia patients is at a critical moment. Each of these groups must work together, as partners, to advance progress toward better patient care and more effective treatments for Ataxia. Check out session from 2023 AAC to learn and take action toward accelerating treatment development.
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.
