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 hs-22q@ucdavis.edu with "Upcoming Event" in the Subject Line.
