The Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance is holding a strategic meeting on December 15. The board of directors and invited advisors are gathering in Durham, NC, with the goal of the thinking strategically regarding the organization. Based on this group’s recommendations, we expect to continue to set up structures that will empower the AE Alliance to increase awareness, build community, and improve care. We are excited about this opportunity and incredibly grateful to those who are giving of their time to offer counsel; all towards making us a better resource. We look forward to sharing outcomes of the gathering with the AEA community.
