Every other year the NSF holds a family conference for families, care providers, therapists, teachers, and doctors under one roof to learn and discuss the latest information on Noonan syndrome. The conference is a great opportunity to meet new friends and catch up with old ones!
The Noonan Syndrome Foundation Conference is a unique learning opportunity for families and professionals to connect. The program offers keynote speakers who are experts in their fields, workshops tailored to connect families with others of similar experiences, individual consultations with the Noonan syndrome medical experts, childcare for individuals with Noonan syndrome and their siblings, up to age 12, and teen care for individuals with Noonan syndrome and their siblings ages 13-17.
