Annual Alopecia Areata Conference


Fearless in Seattle is the theme of the 34th Annual NAAF International Conference scheduled for Thursday, June 27, to Sunday, June 30, 2019, in Renton, Washington. Special guests and speakers will provide an experience like no other! A panel of expert researchers and clinicians will provide you with the extraordinary opportunity to directly address questions to the very people most intimately involved in the search for treatments and a cure.
