SIDS/SUID and Stillbirth –
A National Research and Advocacy Symposium
March 23 - 25, 2009 | Embassy Suites Hotel | Washington, D.C.
Welcome and Opening Speaker – Dr. Yvonne Maddox, NICHD
Space is limited, so register early to attend this innovative meeting. Leading researchers will present updates on current research and strategies for saving infant lives. There will be interactive workshops and a networking dinner for all researchers and attendees. The symposium will conclude with visits to Capitol Hill to encourage our nation’s lawmakers to support critical legislation and programming that will help us reach our goal of a future where all babies survive and thrive.
More details on the agenda will be posted on the First Candle website as they become available.
Family members affected by stillbirth, SIDS and SUID will be given priority consideration. After January 15, registration will be open to a more general audience. A non-refundable $25 deposit will hold your spot and be used to offset your food and beverage costs during the conference.
Hotel rooms will be available for $219 per night (plus tax), but more affordable housing options are being pursued; details to follow. If traveling by air, be sure to book early to take advantage of any discounted fares!
