Keynote Speaker at the FIRST National Conference

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.





FIRST has been fortunate to have many wonderful keynote speakers join our National Conference over the years. Nashville was the first conference that, in addition to our keynote, we highlighted an individual affected with ichthyosis. With the success of our speaker, Bailey Pretak, we have received interest from others in the ichthyosis community to speak at the National Conference in Providence.  If you would like to be considered as a speaker for the conference, please submit a 2-3 minute video stating why you think that you would be the best choice to speak this year.  Also, please complete this brief application providing an overview of what you will be covering during your talk.  The deadline to submit applications is Friday, August 30, 2019.  All submissions should be emailed to Lisa Breuning at  The conference committee will review the submissions.
