Today is the last day you can apply for a scholarship for this August’s National Marfan Foundation conference! These scholarships are only available to people in the United States and preference is given to those who have never attended a conference before.
Here are some other important dates and links:
Patient evaluations (free clinic): June 15th deadline
Register for conference: June 25th deadline for early bird registration discount
Conference has multiple special programs. There is a children’s program for kids ages 5-12, a teen program for teens ages 13-18, and a young adult program for ages 19+. The children and teen programs are FREE with a registered adult (and a registered adult MUST attend). The young adult program is not free. The registration deadline for these 3 special programs is June 25th.
If you have ANY way to attend conference, I highly recommend it (especially if you have kids/teens)! Just hit the “conference” tab here and you’ll see post after post about how vital conference is, both in terms of health information and increasing self-esteem.
