The Chair « Anosmia : Making the invisible visible» is organizing a first meeting and conference about anosmia on the 20th March 2017. This event aims to bring together people living with anosmia, researchers, organizations and prominent individuals, to set an agenda how to make anosmia more visible and recognized in public, and to explore different ways of improving quality of life for people with anosmia.
