2018 FAMILY MEETING : JULY 26 & 27

We are very excited for the first of its kind HNRNPH2 FAMILY MEETING in White Plains NY that will be held at the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain (CADB).  HNRNPH2 Families from all over the world will attend to hear presentations given by medical minds who have shown interest in our group from prestigious institutions including Columbia Presbyterian in NYC and St. Jude Children’s Hospital and orphan drug company, Cydan in Cambridge, MA. Families will share with one another and gain insights to begin documenting the rare disease that connects them.  Finally, those touched by HNRNPH2 mutations will undergo a battery of assessments and give bio-specimens to both add to the growing body of knowledge about the diagnosis and provide material needed for further scientific research in laboratories.
