We aspire to improve the lives of children and adults affected by PANS/PANDAS and other immune-related encephalopathies.

We are experienced leaders in the PANS/PANDAS advocacy community, who together believe collaboration and empowered action are the keys to the world we seek: one where no one suffers through PANS and PANDAS and immune-related encephalopathies without access to a knowledgeable provider, insurance coverage for standard-of-care treatments, or the support that comes with public awareness.

We aspire to collaborate.
