"LIVING IN HOLLAND"
We are excited to announce the 2022 Kleefstra Syndrome Family Conference. The theme of the conference is “Living in Holland” – a twist on the poem Welcome to Holland by Emily Perl Kingsley.
The conference will be held from June 23rd-25th at the DoubleTree Hotel in Naperville, Illinois (about 20 miles SW of Chicago O’Hare airport). This conference will focus on practical education and tips for families raising children and adults with KS. The topics to be covered in the different breakout sessions are described below.
We are happy to announce Dr. Siddharth Srivastava and Zoë Frazier from the Kleefstra Clinic at Boston Children's Hospital will be joining us at the conference. We are also thrilled to announce that Dr. Karlijn Vermeulen will be joining us virtually to present a keynote address around the topic of regression.
We are incredibly excited to bring our Kleefstra Syndrome Community together to learn, connect, and bond with one another. We are stronger together, and we look forward to connecting to strengthen our ties with one another while unlocking the potential for our loved ones with Kleefstra Syndrome.
