The Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) Foundation is holding its national conference, June 28 – July 1, at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center. This year’s conference theme is Building Bridges Together. The biennial event brings together more than 500 attendees, including families and their children with CdLS, and medical professionals in the areas of genetics, gastroenterology, internal medicine, behavior, ophthalmology, and more.

Conference provides families the opportunity to share personal experiences and make connections with others who face similar challenges. Parents and caregivers can attend more than a dozen educational seminars and family workshops, participate in roundtables, and hear from keynote speakers on topics ranging from behavior to special education advocacy.

Individuals with CdLS receive free, private, head-to-toe consultations with physicians and allied health professionals who are distinguished in their specialties and who have expertise in the treating of children with CdLS.
