On this page we will post as many upcoming conferences, outreach, educational or awareness events as possible on the subject of the disorders that we study. We will list events that present opportunities for families to learn more about the disorder and responses to it, to meet others affected by the same disorder, and to advance the cause for research and treatments related to those disorders. Where possible, we will provide links directly to the organization responsible for the event. If there is a conference or event that is not listed here that you think should be included, please let us know about it by sending an email message to 22q@ucdmc.ucdavis.edu with "Upcoming Event" in the Subject Line.

Minds behind the MIND Presentation October 17 , 9-11am, The Case of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome: What we have learned about anxiety in children, presented by Tony Simon, Ph.D., Kathy Angkustsiri, M.D., Ingrid Leckliter, Ph.D.
Anxiety is common in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders and can often present atypically in children, especially in those with cognitive and communication challenges. The 22q.11.2DS team will present what they have learned in their research and clinical experience with children who have 22q11.2DS and how this knowledge extends to the importance of identifying and treating anxiety in children with neurodevelopmental disorders.

Annual 22q11.2 Family Meeting will follow the Minds Behind the MIND Event from 12.30-5pm. Flyer (PDF) »
