Meeting the 2nd Thursday of Every Month – May 13 Genetics Discussion
If you’re a parent of a child with neurofibromatosis type 1, type 2, or schwannomatosis you’re welcome to join our parent group which meets online on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 8 PM CST. Even if your child is grown, you’re welcome to join us and share your wisdom. We will often have special guests and special topics and we hope to always have time to express concerns and/or share stories.
May 13th’s meeting will include a short visit by Allison (Goetsch) Weisman, MS, CGC a Genetic Counselor from Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Allison will take questions about genetics and NF.
Note, NF Midwest serves Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, and Wisconsin. We invite people from other areas to attend, however, if the group gets large we may have to restrict participation to our area. Also, some topics or areas of support may not apply if you’re not from our area.
