KDA Annual Conference 2022


The 2022 KDA Conference will be held on November 9 -11 at the Holiday Inn Bayside in San Diego or virtually on Zoom. While attendance at our annual conferences has greatly increased as a result of the virtual format, we have missed the personal connections and collaboration that occur when we meet in person. This first "hybrid" event will give us the best of both worlds. As always, we are planning presentations on the many facets of Kennedy's Disease: the latest information that contributes to our understanding of it, what works for those who are dealing with it, and what is being done in the research community to develop a treatment. In addition, we will conduct a Patient-Focused Drug Development Meeting in coordination with the Food and Drug Administration so that FDA can hear directly from patients, families, and caregivers about the symptoms that matter most to them and the impact of the disease on their daily lives.
