Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Conference

By Gwen Solis, Parent, San Antonio, Texas

Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) is a genetic disorder that causes mental, physical, and developmental delays. Each year families and professionals come together from all over the world for a weekend full of informative workshops, sibling activities, parental bonding and lots of food and fun! This year is the 20th Annual International Conference for the families of children with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. Our conference will be held at the beautiful Doubletree Hotel in Dallas, Texas from June 24-27, 1999.

Each year, no matter where the conference is held, Girl Scout Troop 905/959 from Bogata, New Jersey, raise their own funds to come to the conference and provide loving childcare for the CdLS children, so their families can attend the conference and receive invaluable information.

CdLS has its own Scientific Advisory Board. It consists of top medical professionals who specialize in CdLS and attend the conference each year. They range from geneticists, ophthalmologists, ENTs, gastroenterologists, psychologists, orthopedists, dentists, and more.

This is always a memorable and important event. If you or anyone you know want to learn more about CdLS or the upcoming conference, please call the CdLS Foundation at (800) 223-8355.
