First One-Day Conference in Fort Lauderdale breaks new ground for GBS|CIDP Foundation International

Dr. Ken Gorson, Chairman of the GBS|CIDP Foundation’s Global Medical Advisory Board, presenting on ‘Managing Residuals’ at Fort Lauderdale’s Regional Conference

Our biennial International Symposia has been a hallmark at GBS|CIDP Foundation International since its inception.
The 14th International Symposium held in San Antonio, TX, in September of 2016 drew a record attendance. The three-day event offered fun, fellowship, and was jam-packed with exciting presentations from many of the world’s most renown neurologists and healthcare professionals. “The best symposia ever,” we heard! Our members/patients know how important it is to have easy access to the most current information regarding their conditions. They also recognize the opportunity our symposia offer them to interact with knowledgeable healthcare professionals along with the many other individuals who struggle with the same rare conditions they do. Many have expressed that two-years is too long to wait for the opportunity to attend.
To address those concerns, and several others, GBS|CIDP Foundation International has introduced a series of geographically-diverse One-Day Conferences for 2017. The One-Day Conference format was implemented to be able to offer the same, high-quality, information as our biennial symposia, but on a regional basis and at three convenient locations across the country, Fort Lauderdale, FL, Baltimore, MD, and Chicago, IL.

The first conference, held on March 4 in Fort Lauderdale, FL, was well-attended and blended the expertise of our Global Medical Advisory Board with local resources. Of no surprise, attendees were quite outspoken about the high quality of the presentations and their ability to “meet old friends for the first time,” another GBS|CIDP Foundation International hallmark.

Our second and third conferences are scheduled for Saturday, May 6 at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD, and on Saturday, September 23, in Schaumburg (Chicago,) IL.
