    The Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine (FMM) is proud to join forces with the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF) to bring this exciting educational opportunity to the Southeast Region.  Both organizations are dedicated to providing quality education about mitochondrial disease to medical and patient communities and supporting research advancements to find better treatments and cures for mitochondrial disease.  The symposium program will focus on mitochondrial disease and mitochondrial dysfunction, which is at the root of diseases and conditions that affect the young and old in ways that can range from subtle to devastating, and is even responsible for the aging process itself.  The program will offer a full day CME activity on Friday and a half day of sessions for patients/families on the following Saturday. Both groups will come together for a Friday night reception to encourage networking and exchange of information.  A feature component of the 2017 Southeast Regional program will include a glance at cutting-edge research developments in bioenergetics, coming out of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Mitochondrial Medicine Laboratory, in conjunction with Seahorse Bioscience/Aglient Technologies.  Additionally, a keynote address from The Energy Project will provide a broader energy perspective to enlighten, educate, inspire and unlock new ideas and solutions to human energy problems facing us all.
