We held our 7th conference on Glut1 Deficiency on July 13-14, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee.  We were joined by families, professionals, and exhibitors from 26 states and 11 countries.  We are all so grateful to everyone who came to take part.

We are gathering resources to share from the conference experience and will add them here as they are ready.
