AE Day of Strength, 27 July 2019, Texas Children’s Hospital


The Foundation is honoured to have been invited by The Texas Children’s Hospital to participate in their AE Day of Strength, for survivors and caregivers on Saturday, 27 July 2019, in Houston, Texas.

Building on the success of last year’s event, titled AE Day of Hope, the theme this year will be Strength.This special event will bring together patients and their families affected by autoimmune encephalitis to connect with other affected families, to exchange stories of shared hardship and ways of coping, as well as learning about the latest updates in the field of neuro-immunology.

No one should have to face the hardships of autoimmune encephalitis alone and what better way than to dedicate a day and shine a stark bright light on a group of diseases that few had heard of, until their loved-one was stricken.

The global AE family is growing and strengthened thanks to the contribution, leadership and solidarity with patients and their families of The Texas Children’s Hospital.

The Foundation’s founding president, Ms. Nesrin Shaheen is looking forward to making the keynote presentation and to meeting patients and their families.

If you are in the Houston area or can travel, we would love to see you there.
