FIRST's 2018 National Conference location will be Nashville, Tennessee!
Mark your calendars for June 29 - July 1, 2018!
FIRST hosts a 3-day national conference every two years. This is FIRST's premier event open to all members of the Foundation. Traditionally the location for the conference moves across the country each time the conference is held.
National Conferences are a fantastic opportunity for affected individuals and their families to meet and network with other affected individuals and consult with leading medical experts. They connect those searching for information and support in living wih ichthyosis and related skin types.
These 1-day meetings are filled with medical information, networking, sharing about product ideas, and skin care routines. The meetings will include a light breakfast, lunch, and childcare for families with children.
Are You the FIRST to Know?
The FIRST to Know conference calls are a great way to “meet” other families and individuals. Sharing tips, stories and challenges makes living with ichthyosis easier. All calls are held in Eastern Time, and are phone calls only, so you only need a phone, not a computer.
