We are thrilled to announce that an incredibly talented group of producers, cameramen, and film specialists volunteered their time to create a permanent record of the NE PANDAS/PANS Parents Association 2013 North East Conference. 

A very special thank you to Christine Mitsogiorgakis! She is the force behind making this a reality! Christine says she could not have accomplished this without the love and help of: Bob Grisanti, cameraman and director of photography. Emile Last, from NY Life insurance who donated his equipment.  Other equipment came from parents; Tom Talbot recorded the screens with equipment donated by Boston Camera.  Ken Blando brought lighting and his camera from his company Pulse productions and Sally Plone brought her directing talents. In addition, I huge thank you to Adam McCune who filmed the entire Parents Q&A event in April and the Doctors Breakfast event that took place in April as well.
