Our 2013 Conference is the Biggest One Yet!

d179b4d8-e3eb-413c-9ed9-909f56775843_zps9f9029a0The 28th annual Narcolepsy Network Conference in Atlanta was big! Big in size, with more than 400 PWNs and their supporters attending.  Big in stature, with six of the narcolepsy world’s best researchers and doctors making presentations.  Big in information, with more than 40 sessions. And big in fun and fellowship, with old friends reuniting, new friendship forming, and many people meeting other PWNs for the very first time.

Siegel speechThe conference kicked off Friday night with registration and the opening reception.  Saturday started with breakfast, the keynote presentation by Dr. Michael Thorpy, and an update on narcolepsy research from Dr. Jerry Siegel.

Conference-goers then headed to smaller presentations that matched their interests.  Subjects ranged from succeeding in school with narcolepsy to research updates (turn to page 6 for more) to day-to-day living and support.

On Sunday, attendees continued to attend small group sessions, then gathered for lunch and Neuroscience of Narcolepsy, a research-focused presentation by Dr. Thomas Scammell. IMG_0597

Throughout the weekend, attendees had the opportunity to browse the N[Art]: Narcolepsy Art exhibit featuring the work of more than 20 PWNs, and to meet authors and artists.

As the conference wound down, old and new friends made plans to meet up again, either online or at our 2014 conference in Denver.  More information on dates will be available soon.
