After 2 years of online meetings, we are ready (at least I am) to get together and meet in person again. It is with great excitement that I would like, as my first in-person meeting, to see you at the 4th International Conference on Functional Neurological Disorders.
Initially scheduled for 2020, the meeting had to be delayed by the COVID pandemic. But that did not come without a silver lining. The FNDS responded with the weekly webinars, which are now one of the best resources on FND on the internet. You will see some of those familiar faces at the meeting which will give you a great opportunity to learn the latest research in FND. Below I would like to highlight my day-by-day best of the 2022 Conference.
On Sunday, what better way to start the morning than listening to Prof. Alan J. Carson talking on FND-Then and Now. Giving an insight into the present and future of FND. After a morning listening to the Clinical Presentations of FND, I'm sure not to miss the Presidential Address by Mark Hallett, MD, Dr. Med(hon), FNDS President. Finishing the day with my favorite part, the Video Grand Rounds.
After getting my coffee, Monday morning starts with the effects of early development in FND where I would not like to miss the perspective by David L. Perez. Later in the day, you will find the session on Neuroimaging and the use of Functional and Structural imaging.
On the last day, we have a morning focus on the treatment of FND followed by the lunchtime workshops A and B each with 4 parallel sessions of highly interesting topics. You will find me for sure in the FMDs Triggered By Social Media with Mered Parnes, MD.
These are only a few of the many sessions scheduled during the 3-day meeting. Go to our social media links and tell us which sessions are you looking for. I am excited to hear from you and meet you this coming June.
