Welcome

The Propionic Acidemia Foundation invites you to join us at the 2018 Warrior Wisdom Conference at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Columbus Dublin on October 19-21,2018. 

Propionic Acidemia Foundation (PAF) is a US-based non-profit engaged in raising funds for research on propionic acidemia (PA). The mission of PAF is to find improved treatments and a cure for Propionic Acidemia by funding research and providing information and support to families and medical professionals. To date, we have raised over $1.4m toward our mission and awarded over 30 research grants.

The PAF Warrior Wisdom Conference is a major educational event for families and health care professionals who share an interest in the treatment of individuals with propionic acidemia. The program provides attendees the opportunity to learn through presentations, as well as, time to share research, treatment updates, and to network. 

PAF’s 2017 Warrior Wisdom Conference was attended by families affected by PA, physicians and other providers, researchers, representatives from medical food companies, industry, and local support organizations. For more information, see PAF’s Fall 2017 Newsletter. The diverse backgrounds of attendees facilitated great discussions and learning. 

This year, we are combining our Conference with a fundraising activity. Registration will begin on Friday, October 19th at 6:30 pm. On Saturday, October 20th, we will hear from our presenters, listen to a family panel, visit exhibitors, participate in small group discussions, and network. On Sunday, October 21st, some of our families and friends will be running in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon and Half Marathon to raise awareness and funds to go toward PAF’s mission and others will be cheering them on!     

Last year, the Warrior Wisdom Conference was attended by 80 people including 15 families. Our attendance expectation for this year is between 150 and 200 attendees, including 30 families.
