2021 CJD Foundation Family Conference
Friday, July 16, 2021 - 8:00am

The CJD Foundation's Family Conference, held annually in Washington, D.C., brings together prion disease experts and families affected by prion disease.

The 2021 Conference will take place July 16 - 18, 2021
Capitol Hill Advocacy Day: Monday, July 19, 2021

Saturday and Sunday, we’ll learn about the latest scientific discoveries. With the help of our Medical Director, we invite scientists conducting new and promising prion disease research to speak to our families about their work. We’ll also hear about the work of the CJD Foundation, the CDC, APRI, the NPDPSC.

Monday is devoted to visiting your state representatives on Capitol Hill. We set up the appointments for those families wishing to participate and provide advocacy training on Sunday afternoon. This is a unique opportunity to make our voices heard and to request continued funding for prion disease surveillance.


Please consider joining us for the 2020 CJD Foundation Family Conference on July 10 – 12, 2020 (Advocacy Day visits to Capitol Hill will take place July 13, 2020).
