Join Us Virtually for our 37th Annual International FD Day Conference! 


The FD Foundation and the Dysautonomia Center at NYU Langone are hard at work planning our 37th annual FD Day, a virtual event scheduled for Sunday, June 12, 2022. You can anticipate hearing the latest updates on clinical care and scientific research from key members of the Dysautonomia Center team and leading scientists studying FD. You can also look forward to re-connecting (virtually, of course) with friends from the FD community worldwide. Programming details have yet to be confirmed, but we invite you to continue to check the FD Day site.
