On Saturday, August 24, 2019, the UAB Department of Genetics and the Children's Tumor Foundation are hosting the 2019 UAB Neurofibromatosis Symposium and Family Day. We would like to invite you and your family to attend this free event.

The UAB Neurofibromatosis Symposium and Family Day offers patients, families, and caregivers the opportunity to hear from the leaders at UAB and Children's of Alabama providing clinical care for children and adults living with neurofibromatosis. Presentations will include an overview on neurofibromatosis, new care management guidelines, clinical trial opportunities, neuropsychological development in NF, and an ask the experts panel. We will also have a special tribute in memory of Dr. Lane Rutledge, beloved physician to many within the UAB NF Clinic.

Thanks to funding provided by the Children's Tumor Foundation, there is no charge to attend the NF Symposium and Family Day. Breakfast and lunch are provided and childcare and activities for age three and older are also provided. Parking is free in the 5th Avenue Parking Deck at Children's of Alabama.

We have an informational and fun day planned. We hope you make plans to attend. You can view the full agenda online and register by visiting https://2019uabnfsymposium.eventbrite.com/ .
