Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the OIF Regional Conference intended for?
OIF Regional Conferences are intended for OI community members and their families who live in the local area or region. These are one-day meetings designed to provide opportunities to learn more about osteogenesis imperfecta and current treatment options. Individuals in the greater Tampa area with all types and severities of OI are welcome to attend.
Will I be able to speak with experts and have my health concerns addressed?
There will be a designated time during each session for Q&A, and we encourage everyone to ask questions and participate.
Will there be information on adult OI health?
Yes! When relevant, all speakers will address both adult and pediatric health concerns. There will be an adult health discussion in the afternoon.
Is the OIF Regional Conference: Kansas City replacing the OIF National Conference?
No, it is not replacing the OIF National Conference. While OIF Regional Conferences have some similarities with OIF National Conferences, they are distinct programs with different goals. Regional Conferences are intended for local community members and highlight local resources and physician speakers in a shorter and more intimate meeting format.
Can I book a hotel room?
The OIF has reserved a small block of rooms at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Kansas City Plaza until Friday, October 14. You can find that link here, and a small number of ADA rooms are available by contacting the hotel directly.
We look forward to seeing you again!
