In a continued effort to protect our Ataxia community, we’ve been monitoring the news about COVID-19. We have also been in contact with members of NAF’s Medical Research Advisory Board (MRAB). Their advice is to cancel any non-essential meetings, until further notice, because a person with Ataxia is at risk of complications if they contract the virus.
At this time, NAF recommends cancellation of all in-person support group meetings.
Please check the events calendar for up-to-date meeting cancellations and virtual meeting options.
