The Usher Syndrome Coalition presents the 9th Annual USH Connections Conference (formerly known as the Usher Syndrome Family Conference), to be held on Saturday, July 15, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. This one-day annual family conference is the largest gathering in the Usher community, a place for individuals with Usher syndrome, family members, friends and professionals to learn about the latest advances in Usher syndrome research. The event’s science sessions, family panel, research Q&A, lengthy breaks and evening social allow for the opportunity to connect with others impacted by Usher syndrome and engage with researchers who are working tirelessly towards a cure.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Edwin M. Stone, director of the Wynn Institute of Vision Research, home of the William Kimberling Usher Research Laboratory.
