The 31st National PWS Conference

November 16, 2011

What an amazing opportunity Latham Centers had at the 2011 Conference. As sponsors of this major event, we had the pleasure of meeting new and re-connecting with old friends.  I heard my name called out in the exhibit lobby and hugged Margaret Stone, a former nursing supervisor of the Latham School who had retired to Florida and volunteered at the conference.  She was delighted to learn of Latham’s involvement and to catch up on her former colleagues from Cape Cod.  From the opening keynote address to the closing ceremonies, the conference offered all of us an opportunity to hear what is happening in the world of PWS.

What we experienced at the conference was a comaradarie amongst those who support and those who love a person with PWS. Families, providers, medical staff, educators and other professionals are working together to advance the research, treatment, education and quality of life for people with PWS. Imagine 900 people gathered under one roof, all there to be part of the solution to the many challenges people with PWS face.  It was joyful to see the children engaged in activities and the parents gaining strength from each other. Congratulations to the staff and volunteers, to PWSA (USA), and everyone connected with this great event.  Congratulations to Gloria W of Winnepeg, Canada on winning the Kindle at our exhibit booth.  I spoke with parents from around the country over the course of the three days and I thank all of you for your information and interest.
Let’s keep this momentum going.
