Join the Hypersomnia Foundation for our first regional conference “Beyond Sleepy in the Mile High City,” on Sunday, June 12, 2016, from noon to 5:00 pm MDT at the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Denver or via live Internet stream.
You spoke and we listened! Your feedback after the 2015 Hypersomnia Foundation conference led us to create a different conference experience for 2016 to better meet your financial and geographic needs. We have simplified the program, focused on idiopathic hypersomnia, reduced the cost, and changed the location. And, we will be streaming the conference live via the Internet for those who can’t join us in person.
Registration for the meeting in Denver is now open. Seating is limited, so reserve your ticket today for only $25! Click here to order your ticket or go to https://2016hypersomniaconference.eventbrite.com/.
Registration for the video stream will open on June 1, 2016, so mark your calendar and visit the website to sign up. Thanks to the generous support of Balance Therapeutics, Inc., and Flamel Technologies, SA, the live video stream will be free of charge; however, registration is required.
What hasn’t changed? We have again gathered acclaimed clinical and scientific experts to share the latest understanding and treatments of hypersomnia! The following list is confirmed, and we anticipate adding a few more sessions to the program in the coming weeks.
- How to live with hypersomnia today: incorporating behavioral sleep medicine in the treatment of central disorders of hypersomnolence—Jason Ong, PhD, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago
- Double-blind drug studies in France to treat idiopathic hypersomnia—Isabelle Arnulf, MD, PhD, Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital Institute for Brain and Spinal Cord.
- The long and winding road from drug discovery to FDA approval: how you fit into the picture—TBD
- Information is Power! Contributing to the Registry of Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence at CoRDS—Catherine Friederich Murray, Chair, Board of Directors, Hypersomnia Foundation, Inc. and TBD
- What are the latest developments in idiopathic hypersomnia research?—Lynn Marie Trotti, MD, MSc, and David Rye, MD, PhD, Emory University
Because several meetings are taking place at the same time in Denver, hotel rooms in the immediate area of our conference may be quite expensive. However, many lower-priced rooms are available in the greater Denver area. For this reason and because hotels required that we reserve a minimum of two nights to set aside a block of rooms, the Hypersomnia Foundation will not be reserving room blocks at any hotels. We will have space at the Embassy Suites hotel for folks to hang out Sunday morning beginning at 10 am, so come early and meet up with your friends, old and new.
