Why should I attend?
For families affected by congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN), also known as giant moles, the Nevus Outreach Family Conference and Reunion is an invaluable opportunity to connect with others who share similar experiences. This annual event provides a welcoming and supportive environment where families can learn about CMN, share their stories, and access a wealth of resources.
At the conference, families can attend informative sessions led by experts on CMN, including doctors, researchers, and therapists. These sessions cover a wide range of topics, from the latest medical treatments to strategies for coping with the psychosocial impact of CMN. Families also have the opportunity to participate in support groups and workshops, where they can connect with other families and learn from their experiences.
In addition to the educational opportunities, the conference offers a variety of social events that provide families with the chance to relax and have fun. These events include receptions, dinners, and games, and they provide a great opportunity for families to connect with each other in a more informal setting.
The Nevus Outreach Family Conference and Reunion is a truly special event that provides families with the support and resources they need to navigate the challenges of CMN. If you or someone you know is affected by CMN, we encourage you to attend this year's conference. You will not be disappointed!
Great Benefits and Great Bargain
Attending a Nevus Outreach Conference and Reunion is a wonderful experience. Between information sessions, motivational speakers, and opportunities to connect with others in the same boat, the conference is packed with great benefits.
But did you know it is also a great bargain? Nevus Outreach heavily subsidizes the cost of attendance to make the conference accessible to all. Financial aid is available to those who qualify, but even those who don't receive aid are getting a value.
Conferences are an expensive proposition. Food, room rental, logistics, entertainment, presentation costs, and extra staffing like childcare add up quickly. Below is a quick breakdown of the most recent conference in Denver.
Nevus Outreach's ability to keep this level of subsidy is dependent on support from the membership. This is particularly true now when the impact of inflation means our dollars buy less. Please consider supporting Nevus Outreach by becoming a conference supporter or hosting a fundraiser.
