Our 2013 Conference is October 18-20 in Atlanta
Make plans to join us for a “peach party” in Atlanta!
Narcolepsy Network’s 28th annual conference will be held at the InterContinental Hotel Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia, October 18-20, 2013.
One of the most anticipated parts of the weekend is the fellowship with other people with narcolepsy. For many attendees, the conference is the first time they have ever met someone else who shares their diagnosis. It is an educational and emotional experience that many have said is a life-changing event. You don’t want to miss it!
We are planning a full schedule of speakers, workshops and events. Dr. Michael Thorpy, director of the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center at Montefiore Medical Center in New York will give the Saturday keynote address on the diagnostic criteria for narcolepsy. Other sessions include “Navigating College,” “Pregnancy and Narcolepsy,” “Parents of PWNs,” and “How to Start a Support Group.”
