I just got this information from our Exec. Dir about the patient symposium:
Confirmed speakers are:
Dr. Doug Woelkers, University of California, San Diego
Dr. Denise Raynor, Emory University
Dr. Melissa Wilson, University of Southern California
Dr. Jim Roberts, University of Pittsburgh, Magee Womens
Dr. Jim Martin, University of Mississippi
There are a couple more speakers that we are waiting confirmation from.
Preeclampsia: History, Contemporary Definitions and Diagnosis
Impact of underlying disorders; Risk of recurrence
Prevention: What can I do?
Genetics: Does it matter who your parents are?
WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the long-term health impact on surviving mothers and babies? (heart disease, metabolic syndrome, brain lesions, etc.)
Current research & developments in screening & diagnostic tests
HELLP Syndrome Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Short and long-term impact
Each presenter will also take Q&A.
Early bird registration fees expire Monday (must be postmarked by Monday), but of course we're still taking registrations until we hit our max of 70 tickets sold. I'd love to pack the room to show these docs how much we appreciate their time and support of the Preeclampsia Foundation. The link to our registration form can be found on our home page.
