Bringing expert clinicians and researchers to speak at the Glut1 Deficiency Summit brings a multitude of benefits. They not only share important insights and updates with attendees, but it also provides an unmatched and invaluable opportunity for them to interact with, learn from, and be motivated by the patients and families in attendance and to collaborate with one another to improve care and drive research progress.

The average cost to the G1DF to bring each speaker to the Summit is more than $1,000 with travel and hotel expenses. You can help support the efforts by sponsoring a speaker and becoming a Friend of the Foundation.
