The Conference was fantastic now we have had time to look at the evaluations, thanks to all on the committee and their supportive family and colleagues. There are a few photos up of delegates and poster presentations. Podcasts not up yet.

The final conference program with only minor changes is available online
Delegates might want to pre-sell some conference raffle tickets to family and friends (3 for $5) or bring loose change for our raffle, when you see Sarah? I uploaded a photo of Sarah - an amazing handpainted reborn doll by Margaret Mousa. We also have we have an indigenous painting, a $200 hydrotherapy equipment voucher from Peppertown AND not least a Madison resort stay for 2 nights in the blue mountains as major prizes.

Early bird is closed but Poster titles are up online. Well done all experts accepted by the scientific panel.

Early bird deadline extended to Jan 16 because of the busy Xmas season. 10% accommodation rebate available from the Hotels Combined search engine (see accommodation page). Better get in fast and book your hotel as the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras is on Saturday night Feb 27th - thanks for the heads up on that big event Pam! But I think TABF will be bigger - although not so many sequins. ;-)

Check it? Our full program including concurrent breakout sessions is now available online! We hope you like the spread of topics and speakers. Note that we are covering the major NMD's in consideration for the diverse clientele of our conference partner, the INMR, Children's Hospital at Westmead. However, the focus remains on the most common - B/DMD.

Will be attending for sure. Easy for me being in Sydney.
Hoping to learn lots and meet others living with this hideous disease.

I won't be attending, but Julian might be (we'll all be on the Gold Coast at that time) so he can drum up support for The Tour Duchenne.
