The 11th annual 1p36 Deletion Support and Awareness conference will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, USA on Thursday, August 3 through Saturday, August 5, 2017.
We will be staying at the Lord Baltimore Hotel in the middle of downtown. An announcement will be made in early 2017 when rooms are available for booking through our group. In the meantime, take a look at the hotel website here: http://www.lordbaltimorehotel.com/
Scott and I can’t wait to show off our city to you! We will be several blocks from the Inner Harbor tourist district. It will be a short walk to catch an Orioles game at Camden Yards, check out Ravens stadium, paddle a dragon boat, or tour Harborplace attractions like The National Aquarium, the Science Center, the Constellation, or Ripley’s Believe it or Not. A tiny bit further afield is Fort McHenry, where the Star Spangled Banner was born, or the historic neighborhoods of Federal Hill, Canton, and Fell’s Point--each with their own unique sights and shops and restaurants.
If you need a day trip, check out the history and monuments of Washington, DC less than an hour to the south, or Philadelphia 2 hours to the north. The beautiful town of Annapolis and the Naval Academy are close by as are the Civil War battlefields in Antietam, MD, Gettysburg, PA and Fredericksburg in VA.

If you have attended previous conferences, we look forward to seeing you again and picking up where we left off. If you are newly diagnosed or have never been to a conference, we look forward to meeting you, your family, and your 1p36er. We promise you will learn important information and make friendships that will last a lifetime.
We will post more information about the conference as it becomes available. Mark your calendars! We look forward to seeing you next summer!
