“Working with families of children diagnosed with PWS has been one of the greatest honors of my career. The strength and love that these families have is awe-inspiring, and it has been a privilege to be a part of their journey,” Patrice said. “This conference will be an opportunity for all of us to come together to celebrate the successes and brainstorm the yet unanswered. I encourage everyone to come to seek help, join and support this unique community, and help us unite for the continued growth of our amazing kids!”
