Join clinicians and specialists as we launch a national and international movement to end deaths from Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis (PAM).
On Friday, September 13th we will hold the annual Amoeba Summit at Florida Hospital Church. The event is hosted by AdventHealth for Children and presented by the Jordan Smelski Foundation. In addition to the many experts that will be presenting, there will be many physicians, nurses and lab technicians in attendance.
