Registration is now open for the 2016 Annual SMA Conference, which will be held in Anaheim, CA, at The Disneyland Hotel from Thursday, June 16th through Sunday, June 19th, 2016.
Every year, Cure SMA sponsors a conference to bring together the leading SMA researchers, clinicians, and families living with SMA. Cure SMA has been hosting the Annual SMA Conference since 1988. We look forward to reuniting as a community at this year’s conference in order to lend each other support and strength and to learn about the latest advances in research and care.
As always, the Family and the Researcher Conferences run alongside each other. Through the conferences, we bring together researchers, healthcare professionals, and families to network, learn, and collaborate. The Annual SMA Conference is the largest conference in the world for those affected by SMA, and also for those involved in providing support and care for SMA patients.
The weekend is filled with a wide variety of workshops, keynote sessions with leading researchers, a family-friendly research poster session, and more—plus fun events like our meet-and-greet/family fun fest, a pajama party & movie night as well as teen and adult social activities. There are also many opportunities to connect and interact with other SMA families and to receive first hand updates from the researchers.
Visit our conference website to register, and to learn more about the special hotel rate for attendees, and more!
If you are an SMA researcher intending to register for the SMA Researcher Meeting, please note that registration for that portion of our conference will open later this month. Please do not register for the family conference, so that we may ensure you are placed in the proper sessions.
