The 26th Annual SMA Conference kicks off tomorrow with our Newly Diagnosed Program, and continues into the weekend with all of our usual programs that bring families, researchers, and healthcare providers together to network, learn and —plus a few new initiatives.
This will be one of our largest conferences ever. We’re expecting over 1,300 attendees in total, including a record number of over 270 researchers. 18 biotech and pharma companies will be present. From Friday through Sunday, there will be a total of 38 family workshops and 107 formal research presentations. This event is generously supported by 29 Sponsors and 21 exhibitors.
We’ve got lots planned, including:
- Live-tweeting at two key sessions: the opening session on Friday morning at 9:00am, and the researcher Q & A and drug panel at 3:15pm on Saturday (all times central).
- Regular updates from the conference posted right here in our news section.
- Tons of pictures to share!
