2017 NF SYMPOSIUM
It’s time for our annual conference on neurofibromatosis.
Join us to learn & connect with others!
Each year the Tumour Foundation of BC hosts an educational symposium for patients and their families. This one-day event features a variety of speakers including doctors, researchers, counselors, and patients sharing information on neurofibromatosis.
Guests will learn about the latest medical advancements, receive practical advice on NF-related issues and learn about improving their overall health and life.
Date: Saturday, May 6, 2017
We are still working on the agenda but potential topics include: Overview of NF1/NF2; Pain Management; Current Research Update; School; and more!

Take a look at what last year’s guests said about the event

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