I am so excited to attend this conference. It sounds like a weekend full of information.  Looking forward to meeting others that have gone thru the same journey as we have.  It will be an awesome weekend.

Hi Joshua,

The University of Iowa is planning the conference, so as soon as they release an agenda it will be posted here.  Phyllis Talbot will be creating info on events surrounding the Oct. 25th medical conference, and she'll provide details as soon as they are arranged, too.
