Great Expectations - Annual Conference

This Annual event draws the top specialists in the field who bring years of experience to those affected by the disorders and to their colleagues. During the four-day conference you will gain knowledge of symptoms, treatments and research. You will experience a unique opportunity that will give you the power to improve your quality of life, make educated decisions about your medical care and help you take control. But one of the most rewarding benefits will be meeting and sharing this experience with others who personally know what it is like to live with Chiari and syringomyelia.
