Virtual Northeast Regional Conference
The OI Foundation is hosting the first Virtual Northeast Regional Conference on Saturday, February 27 from 9:00am to 12:00pm Eastern Time.
This virtual meeting, chaired by OIF Medical Advisory Council Member Dr. Cathleen Raggio (Co-Director of the Kathryn O. and Alan C. Greenberg Center for Skeletal Dysplasias at Hospital for Special Surgery and Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City), will feature a series of presentations by experts from the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) and other clinics in the Northeast United States. Like past OIF Regional Conferences, this event will provide a brief overview of multiple topics and will feature speakers with extensive experience in treating OI.
Presentation topics will include orthopedic treatments, cardiopulmonary health, hearing, nutrition, physical therapy, and mental health. After each presentation, the speaker and a panel of Northeast-based medical providers will answer audience questions. The full agenda can be found here.
Who should attend?
The OIF Virtual Regional Conferences are for both OI community members and medical professionals who want to learn more about understanding OI from infancy through adulthood. The event will feature speakers and panelists from New York and New England.
OIF Regional Conferences are great opportunities for those who have never attended an OIF event to learn more about osteogenesis imperfecta and connect with local providers.
