Tell us about your experience at the 2017 Dup15q Alliance Family Conference!


Why should I attend the next one?

Once every two years, Dup15q Alliance hosts an international family conference. Sessions will be held on the latest research, treatment and therapies for those with dup15q syndrome, with views from clinicians, providers and parents. We also hope to foster a sense of camaraderie and understanding. Many families feel that this is the one time when they don't have to explain their child and have a chance to meet other parents in similar situations. See below for details!
