Sigh. I still cannot commit to going for more than one day. It's become very hard for me to get away from work other than on the weekends. This conference's guest list absolutely blows away the Singapore conference. This is how it should be. The top people doing the research will be there, instead of a bunch of doctors talking about the work of someone else. If nothing else, I will make it for Saturday and if there is any possible way, I will be there Thursday on. Wednesday will not be possible, but I don't think much is really going on then.

Patients and parents, please be advised that the bulk of this conference will be medical discussions with much technical information. I know many people are up to it, but others may find the information beyond the reach of their understanding, due to the amount of medical and technical language involved. I will say that Puja and Manal handled this stuff quite well in Singapore, so for those who do have some understanding of the technical side of the thalassemia discussion, you will get a lot out of it. On Saturday, there are the TAG sessions that will be oriented towards patients, so everyone will be able to get something out of that.

Kudos to the organizers for a truly incredible group of speakers.  :thumbsup

I really wish i could attend this wonderful conference. The lectures are so interesting and there are many new topics especially about gene regulation and the role of nutrition in thal management.

Any body knows if these lectures will be published or luploaded on any site????

My attendance at the conference is looking less likely.  :sadyup  Right now, Saturday looks like the only day I can possibly be there and I don't know if it's worth the expense for only one day.

Andy,

I really hope that you can attend, you will comprehend more than any of us.  I really hope that things work out and that you are able to be there.  I think that you will also like meeting all of the wonderful doctors that will be there.  We would also love the opportunity to finally meet you in person.
