For some patients, it can be challenging to find a local NF expert. With that in mind we’ve launched “Ask the Expert,” an online, interactive webinar series. Videos of NF experts speaking about a variety of topics related to NF are posted online, and viewers are invited to submit questions about the presentation topic. The answers are then posted online along with the video for everyone’s benefit. It is our goal to empower the NF community by providing the latest in NF research and knowledge in an engaging and easy-to-follow format.
