An all-virtual conference will cover care and research, and events for kiddos!
It’s been way too long since July 2019, when many of us were able to be together, breathing the same air (!) in Chicago. For the safety of our community, we’re waiting one more year to meet again in-person, but we can all be together and get the latest updates through an all-virtual SciFam 2021! Happening May 21-22, 2021 SciFam will feature many of the best parts of our regular event, all from your favorite chair. We’re packing live content into a few hours each day over two days (Friday and Saturday), when we’ll bring the world’s top CMD experts into your home to discuss disorder-specific research and care, and we will lead plenary discussions on topics such as the Therapeutic Toolbox and Clinical Trial Readiness - What Does It mean? But wait! There’s more. We’ll also have pre-recorded bonus sessions on topics such as advocacy, special needs financial planning, transitioning to adulthood, the CMD research publication library, a Photo Booth, and more! We'll also be hosting a poster exhibit hall where researchers and organizations can share the work they're doing. Of course, we haven’t forgotten the kiddos. We have an amazing Kids Program lined up for Saturday, featuring a Virtual Petting Zoo, Trivia, Karaoke, and a Magic & Comedy Show.
Register now for the 2021 Virtual SciFam, hosted by Cure CMD and Team Titin. The cost for affected individuals and their families is $35 per login—that means $35 per connection, no matter how many individuals are watching from a single location. Once you register, you can submit your research and care questions for our experts. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to come together, learn, and connect. If you are unable to participate live, registering will still grant you access to the conference portal through August 31, 2021 where you can watch (and re-watch) all conference content at your leisure.
