2019 Family Day

POND Family Research Information Day 2019

POND Family Research Information Day 2019 was on November 16th! The main goal of the day was for the POND Network to share our recent research findings and get participant feedback and input as we move forward. We thank everyone for your participation in all our research studies. Your volunteer contribution is allowing scientists and clinicians to gather behavioural and biological data that will, in turn, lead to a better understanding of these disorders.
