Still not sure about participating? Here are 5 more reasons you want to attend:

  1. You will gain knowledge that will last a lifetime

No matter how much you know about NF there is always more to learn, and the more you know, the better decisions you can make for your long-term health.

  1. Connect with Real People

In our busy world we often forget the importance and the value of being in a face-to-face setting with others. While social media can help keep us connected, there is real power in meeting others who are walking a similar journey. Lifelong friendships and connections have evolved from the annual symposium.

  1. The Price is Right!

Our event is very affordable. For a small fee you get expert advice and the ability to communicate and interact with some big name people, along with a delicious lunch, all for a fraction of what it really costs.

  1. Have Fun

All work and no play can make for a dull life. Never underestimate the power of a little fun and education mixed with some interesting people!

  1. Wine

The event will end with a wine and cheese social. Did we mention there would be wine at the end of the event? This is a great time to relax and meet new friends!
