Conference Updates
For the last few weeks, we have closely followed the latest updates regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of our patient community.

As your safety and well-being are our top priority, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s International Metabolic Conference at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center in Pittsburgh, PA in July.

We know how important this conference is to the FAOD community, so we are working with our speakers to transition to a virtual program. For updates, stay turned to your email inbox, our Facebook Page and this page. Please continue to submit your t-shirt designs to and submit your recipes here . We still plan to send out t-shirts and share the cookbook with all virtual participants.

About the Virtual Conference

MitoAction will host the 2020 International Metabolic Conference free of charge for parents, affected individuals, family members, and friends.  Professionals are also invited to attend for a small fee. This will be virtual conference powered by MyCityMed on July 24 – 26, 2020.

We are excited to partner with Dr. Jerry Vockley and INFORM to bring to you a series of presentations by leading experts in fatty acid oxidation to share diagnosis, treatment, care and clinical trial updates that are intended to help support you and give you access to resources and networking opportunities as you navigate your day-to-day with these disorders.
