Our annual Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease fundraiser, Colonial Barracks VI, returned to the Sheraton-Metairie November 11-13, 2016. Attendees came as far as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado and Australia this year enjoying historical-miniature wargaming, as well as donating towards CJD research. The spotlight of the CJD Aware's! booth (pictured below) was the FDA' s [Food and Drug Administration] evolution-process (center panel) of an 'compound-into-an-approved-medicine'; as well as possible updates on the 21st Century Bill, a vital piece of legislation* that MAY cross the finish-line this Fall.
*Update: CJD Aware! is very pleased and proud to announce that the 21st Century Cures Bill was passed in Congress and is now officially a law thanks to President Barack Obama's signature. See our page "21st".
