We are dedicated to

  • dramatically accelerating physician education of PANS, PANDAS, and encephalitis;
  • significantly improving outcomes for individuals impacted by these disorders through prompt diagnosis and insurance based care;
  • providing meaningful support to families during their darkest days;
  • catalyzing research at an unprecedented pace that will ultimately lead to lasting remission for all individuals impacted by these disorders.

We aim to accomplish these goals by sponsoring high quality medical education, fundraising for research, and directly supporting families.
