Connect with other Families

Join with other patients and families at the AE Family Lunch on March 3, 2018. Last year 120 patients and their families came together in Durham, NC after the Florence Forth road race. It was a chance to share stories and be in community with others who understand what it means to be an autoimmune encephalitis survivor.

Autoimmune encephalitis patients and their immediate families are invited to join the board of the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance for an AE Family Lunch after the Florence Forth road race.

Details and a few photos from last year’s Family Lunch are below. We will update if we expect to outgrow this locaiton.

Please RSVP early so we can estimate crowd size. We will need all RSVP’s by February 15th to secure enough food.
