Great news! If any of you are located near southern California, I highly recommend you check this out!
CHOC (Children’s Hospital of Orange County) is offering a great POTS conference on December 3-4, 2016 in Orange, California. The conference is $25.00 per person for patients/family members. There is also a conference for medical professionals that you can share with your doctor.
The schedule includes speeches from many of the POTS superstars as well as a breakout session for teens so they can connect with others facing the same battles. To check out the full schedule, click here. Topics covered include POTS, EDS, MCAD, and chronic pain. Here’s the list of doctors who will be presenting:
Although the conference is at the Children’s Hospital, it is for POTS patients (and family members) of all ages. CHOC has arranged for a discount rate at the Doubletree Hotel in Orange County, if you need to stay overnight. There’s also a pizza social (with vegetarian and gluten-free options, I think) on that Saturday night. Should be a lot of fun!
