“TNA is the world’s largest organization providing education and support to patients suffering neuropathic face pain, including trigeminal neuralgia. The purpose of every TNA National Conference is to foster patient – physician interaction in an informal environment. Participating physicians often state that it is the only medical conference they attend where they get to speak directly with patients and caregivers. Our tenth anniversary conference celebrating our 25th year, provides an opportunity to educate yourself on receiving a proper diagnosis and formulating a treatment plan, and it will give you the opportunity to network with other patients and care givers and with some of the foremost medical experts in the nation who treat facial pain.” — http://fpa-support.org
