    • Mary, if there is a financial need we can waive the fee, but we don’t have funds for travel and hotel. Sometimes there are local agencies or state agency that will help people get to a medical conference.

  • Hi,

    I am deaf and wanted to make sure that CART is available for the syymposium for the NF-2 sessions and the morning inspirational speaker and the intro to NF-2 and Genetics in the morning.

    I am also wanting to confirm that the inspirational speaker Matt Hay is planning on still speaking.

    Also I want to know if I can register that morning as I am waiting to find out if my 19 year old can get the day off of work.

    Thank you,

    Janice L. Ropp

    • We always have CART follow the NF2 and general sessions and yes Matt is still speaking.

      If you absolutely need to you may register that morning. The problem is that we need counts for lunch. Please, do your best to register earlier, but if not we understand.
