We are pleased to announce that the 2024 DSF Biennial Family & Professional Conference will be held next year in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on June 20-22. The conference and associated activities will be held at the JW Marriott hotel, which is connected to the Mall of America. Our 6th biennial conference will bring patient families, clinicians, researchers, and industry professionals together to engage with one another and learn about the latest in research and clinical care for Dravet syndrome.
We will be working with Dr. Elaine Wirrell of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, to develop the 2024 agenda. Our staff is already hard at work to ensure another top tier educational event with engagement opportunities for patient families, clinicians, researchers, and industry partners. For those unable to join us in person, sessions will be recorded and made available after the event. (Sessions from our 2022 conference in Fort Worth, Texas, are available here.)
The 2024 conference agenda will be available early next year, with registration and discounted room rates for attendees available in February 2024. If you are interested in attending, be sure to follow our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn) and join our email list for updates. DSF is always open to hearing from our community about possible ideas for our events, such as speaker or topic suggestions. Please reach out to us with any ideas or if you have further questions about the 2024 conference.
And don’t forget – while our conferences operate on a biennial cycle, where we hold our large national conference every other year – in the years we do not hold a national conference, we offer regional Day of Dravet workshops in the fall. These community-building workshops are a great opportunity to learn and connect with other families and stakeholders near you. You can see our 2023 Day of Dravet schedule at this link.
DSF is ready for you to experience all that Minneapolis has to offer and we can’t wait to welcome you in 2024. Save the Date – you won’t want to miss it!
