National Family Conference
National Family Conference is a life-enhancing, 3-day event that bonds and strengthens the entire CdLS community. Held every other year, Conference brings together the broad spectrum of our diverse and dynamic community, including individuals with CdLS, their families, caregivers, medical and therapeutic professionals, volunteers and researchers.
What to Expect
Attendees have an opportunity to gain knowledge on how to best care for their loved one with CdLS and meet other families facing similar challenges. Individuals with CdLS receive free head-to-toe consultations with experts from a range of health and educational fields.
Not only will attendees be better equipped to face challenges throughout their loved one’s lives, but also leave with a sense of belonging.
