Familial FTD: Resources, Needs, and Emerging Opportunities session
Does your family have a known genetic variant? Do you want to learn more about the relationship between FTD and your genes (C9orf72GRN, MAPT, VCP, FUS, or others)? Please join AFTD for this session that will educate families on available resources and current clinical trials, foster engagement with others who have the same concerns, and learn what actions you can take.  

Persons with FTD networking breakfast
People with FTD and their care-partner are welcome to join members of AFTD’s Persons with FTD Advisory Council in Landmark 5 from 8:00 to 9:30 to have breakfast and meet others living with a diagnosis. There will be a continental breakfast available to all, and we encourage those living with FTD to bring their food and drink to Landmark 5 for a chance to eat and network before the start of the conference.
 
Breathe, Move and Take Care
Join Corey Esannason, yoga teacher and former AFTD Ambassador, and start the morning off by taking care of you! As the daughter of a parent diagnosed with FTD, Corey recognizes the need for simple and tangible self-care exercises. This experiential session will guide participants through simple yoga poses, breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and meditation.
