The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy (FPN) invites you to join us for a discussion on Hereditary Neuropathy and Genetic Testing. Brett McCray, M.D., PhD, will join us to share his insights into hereditary neuropathy, as well as current advances in the space which may be of interest to patients with hereditary neuropathy as well as idiopathic neuropathy. Christy Smith, Sc.M., C.G.C., will then share with us the importance of genetic testing, what it means for patients, and what to expect.
