FIRST National Conference-Providence

FIRST's 21st Biennial National Conference will be held in Providence, Rhode Island during the weekend of June 26 - 28, 2020 at the Crowne Plaza Providence-Warwick Airport Hotel.


We're headed to the biggest city in the smallest state. Providence is home to many historical sites and features many water activities too!  You will meet lots of new friends and families affected with very same rare skin condition, but you will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the world’s most renowned medical experts in the field of ichthyosis - all while enjoying the place where history and hipness go hand in hand.  The FIRST National Conference has something for everyone. Whether you are an affected adult attending on your own, a relative or friend of someone affected, or a family coping with an affected child, the FIRST National Conference offers plenty of opportunities for education, inspiration, and so much more.

Learn how the 2018 FIRST National Conference-Nashville led Puveri to create a support network in Namibia.
