Event description

Description

This is the sixth year of Cinderblocks as a patient led conference.

This is the fifth year that it is hosted in the beautiful mountains of Western Maryland.

Each year we gather together as patient and provider, technician and artist, dancer and informatics professional, nurse and lawyer, all working together to make healthcare better for us all.

The conference consists of two and 1/2 days of educational sessions and evening events. On Thursday July 18th at Salt & Pepper Studios we host a dedication to members of The Walking Gallery who have finished their earthly mission. On Friday May 19, The Walking Gallery Gathers and we have a concert near the Casselman Bridge.

By Car:
The location is about 1 ½ hours by car from Pittsburg or 2 ½ hours from DC/Baltimore.
