What is Ataxia Clinical Training?

NAF’s Ataxia Clinical Training (ACT) program debuted in March 2022. The primary objective of this training session is to acquire practical knowledge about the diagnostic investigation and treatment of Ataxias through a series of didactic talks by clinicians who have significant experience in this area. Attendees are introduced to ongoing research in the field of Ataxia and have the ability to personally interact with patients and families affected by a wide spectrum of Ataxic disorders. The ACT includes topics on diagnostic approaches to Ataxias, heredodegenerative and Acquired Ataxias, neurogenetics of Ataxias, treatment of Ataxia, and research on Ataxia.

ACT provides attendees with the ability to interact with Ataxia experts, many of whom are reputable clinicians and scientists, and explore opportunities for specializing in this field. There is a need for new talent and ideas, given we are ushering in an era of cutting-edge molecular, biopharmaceutical, and bioengineering tools that hold significant promise for the cure of neurodegenerative disorders. The highlight of ACT is interactions between attendees and patients affected by a wide spectrum of Ataxic disorders. Very few conferences offer the opportunity to bolster didactic knowledge with clinical experience making this course unique in its training scope.
