The schedule includes the timeline of workshops and events, including the Family Fun Fest / Carnival, the Family Friendly Poster Session & SMA Dance Party and the PJ Party& Movie Night. Registration for the conference is now open. This conference will fill up fast so register while space and hotel rooms are still available.
You must complete your conference registration with Families of SMA prior to reserving your room at the Gaylord National Resort to secure the FSMA conference room rate. This special room rate is available to SMA conference attendees from Monday, June 9th through Wednesday, June 18th.
Families of SMA has been hosting this conference for 25 years. The weekend will be filled with networking opportunities with other families, workshops, a memorable kids program, a family fun fest and carnival, and opportunities to interact with families and get first hand updates from the researchers. We are looking forward to reuniting as a community at this conference and showing our support for others. As always, the Family and the Research conferences will be running alongside each other. This 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. There is no other program like it for those affected by SMA. The interactions between the researchers and families at one conference is extremely special. The annual conference also provides our children an opportunity to make new friends and have a great time. We are expecting another great attendance of over 1300 attendees.
