Hi Christina, like I told you before, it's so exciting to hear that you connected with that woman! It would be wonderful if Laura can actually BE THERE to attend.
just a thought; be careful that whatever materials you present to the public other than the brochures(magzn articles, info off the web, etc) matches the PF position on this disorder and current research. Possibly Laura or Caryn could direct you on that point.
Also, I think there are 3-5 bullet-points that I once was given that are designed to help you be ready for any on the spot interviews (like a newspaper photog covering the expo). They helped me when I did a radio interview one time....whenever I wasn't sure of what to say I'd just repeat one of those facts. I'll look in my files and get that to you.
For additional ideas about display check in with Kara, I think they did/will be doing an Expo in WI.
I believe I sent you enough brochures and magnets, but if you need more please let Kathy or I know and we can have then sent to you. Also, there are vinyl banners that are available to help make your table look "professional". They've been used at WAT, so someone in your area might have one...if not Kathy can arrange for you to get one.
Hope this info helps. Yay to all of you organizing these fairs/expos! Great opps for spreading awareness.
