Don’t miss our annual conference!
Join us in Denver for â€œMile High Dreams,â€ our 29thÂ annual conference, October 17-19 at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center. The NN conference brings people with narcolepsy, their families, friends and treating professionals together to hear from some of the world’s leading narcolepsy researchers and doctors, and to share experiences with one another. For many attendees, the conference is the first time they have ever met someone else who shares their diagnosis.Â It is an educational and emotional experience that many people have described as a life-changing event.

There will be an N[ART] EXHIBITION at the conference.Â Longtime organizer/curator Laura J. Evert encourages Â you to participate!Â You need not be a distinguished artist, poet, writer, painter, sculptor, photographer, or filmmaker to take part. By living with narcolepsy you have something important to contribute, whether art or craft. Let’s see what you have made!Â The art show will include a display of art pieces that express the artist’s life with narcolepsy, sleep (or the lack there of) + dreams. We would also love to see art + crafts made by those with narcolepsy where a direct link to their narcolepsy may not be as clear.
