The Phelan-McDermid Syndrome Foundation is excited to announce that we have chosen Dallas, Texas, as the location for our 2018 International Conference and McPosium.
In just over a year, we’ll be welcoming families, researchers and supporters to The Big D. We’re can’t wait to get there and we’re confident you’ll feel the same way. It’s a new city for our families where you’ll make new memories and new friends.
We made our choice based on feedback from families, a post-conference survey, site visits and lots of discussion. Many families told us they wanted a city in the central U.S. with easy access from domestic and international locations.
Here are the details:
Date: July 18- 22, 2018
Location: Embassy Suites by Hilton DFW Airport North
Airport: Dallas-Fort Worth International has easy domestic and international flight connections
