Event description

Description



Among its various educational activities, CurePSP sponsors and organizes family conferences across the country, providing people with the opportunity to learn more about PSP, CBD and MSA and to develop a sense of community. We recognize that these diseases present daily challenges for patients and families.

The conferences include various speakers with in-the-field expertise - neurologists and movement disorder specialists who work directly with patients and their families. These experts address issues related to day-to-day life including the best ways to manage symptoms, the impact of the diseases on the family, and how to cultivate perspective of meaning and joy despite the struggles of the disease.

In addition to the educational facts learned during the session, patients, caregivers, and families learn that they are not alone. Attendees leave the meeting having forged new friendships in the PSP, CBD and MSA communities.

CurePSP strives to meet the needs of those who attend our conferences and actively seeks feedback to improve future programs. We place great value in identifying the topics or speakers that are of the greatest interest to attendees.

A sleeping room block at $149.00 a night (not inclusive of tax, etc.) at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare is available here.
Sponsorship information is available here.
