2020 Conference

Slide background

VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

[ Schedule ] [ Speakers ]  [ FAQs ]

Our Houston conference may have been cancelled but we are happy to announce that we are presenting the speakers on a virtual platform where we can still see all families and interact while we listen to the latest studies and research related to Mowat-Wilson Syndrome.

To accomodate the busy life of our families we carefully planned four two-hour sessions on Saturdays.

Simultaneous interpretation/translation to Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian and German during the live event. The conference will be recorded in English and released on YouTube later.

If you have any questions please email conference@mowat-wilson.org or send a text/whatsapp to (203) 543-8100.
