March 29, 2017 NE PANS PANDAS Screening of My Kid is Not Crazy

New England PANS PANDAS Association is hosting this important documentary on how a misunderstood medical condition is baffling doctors and leaving families bereft with the challenges and changes to their child. The documentary will feature comments from the latest findings and how families begin to navigate out of the mental and physical health crisis. There will be a Q&A session following the film.

TACA Massachusetts families are deeply connected to the PANS/PANDAS community as our children often have this disorder as well as a co-morbidity to autism. We know the answers are out there, and join with the NE PANS PANDAS Association to bring forth this awareness.
