Smell and Taste 2019 Conference

It was incredible attending Smell and Taste 2019, a conference through UF Center of Smell and Taste. We met so many wonderful people with smell and taste disorders who courageously shared their stories. Above is an image with Jill who traveled all the way from New Zealand! We are all so profoundly inspired and excited to get back to trying to work on a cure!
