About the Event:
Panelists include: Dr. Sue Swedo – originator of the PANS/PANDAS diagnosis. Dr. Madeleine Cunningham of Moleculara Labs, and namesake to the Cunningham Panel – a test that helps aid the diagnosis of PANDAS. Dr. Nancy O’hara, formerly of Defeat Autism Now, and a private practice pediatrician who presented the day before on the link between Lyme and PANS (or PITANDS). Dr. Mark Pasternack, Unit Chief for Pediatrics Infectious Disease at Massachusetts General Hospital, where there’s been a recent uptick in diagnosis and treatment of PANS/PANDAS. And Dr. Beth Latimer, Georgetown, a leading doctor in the PANS/PANDAS field.

These experts give an explanation of PANS/PANDAS to a group of health care professionals and answer many questions about this ailment. Please note: questions from the audience were not related to specific patients, and there was no microphone present for those questions – so ever attempt was made to caption those questions on the screen.
